The top-draw prize for wonderland ball
SOME lucky person will be getting an enormous, car-shaped present under their tree this Christmas – and there’s still a chance it could be you.
A draw for the top prize of a Ford KA Zetec, worth £10,170, will take place at next weekend’s Winter Wonderland Ball at the Mere Golf Resort near Knutsford.
The event has become a firm fixture in East Cheshire Hospice’s fundraising calendar and, although the ball itself is sold out, there are still draw tickets available at £100 each.
The car has been donated by Sydney Jackson and Son in the hope of raising money for the hospice.
This is the second car the Prestbury-based company has donated to the hospice – the last one raising an amazing £30,000.
East Cheshire Hospice event manager, Jessica Ruth says: “We’re thrilled to have such a great raffle prize. I can’t wait to see the look on the winner’s face as we hand them the keys to a brand new car for Christmas.
“If it raises anything like the last one did, it could significantly boost our bed appeal to buy new inpatient beds at a cost of just over £9,000 each.”
Tickets can be purchased online now at eastcheshirehospice.org. uk/winterwheels.
They are also available from the hospice reception, charity shops and from PR Jones, Jewellers in Chestergate, Macclesfield.
