Don’t let hos­pice be ham­pered

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

WITH the nights draw­ing in and the kids back to school, it won’t be long un­til au­tumn is upon us with its pumpkins, bon­fires, fire­works and the lead-up to Christ­mas.

And Phyl­lis Tuck­well Hos­pice Care, which pro­vides sup­port­ive and end of life care for pa­tients and fam­i­lies, has a whole raft of events planned be­tween now and fes­tive sea­son, and it needs your help.

Raf­fles and tombo­las are al­ways good fundrais­ers, bring­ing in more than £10,000 a year for Phyl­lis Tuck­well, money which en­ables it to con­tinue pro­vid­ing its vi­tal med­i­cal and nurs­ing care, ther­a­pies, coun­selling, so­cial work advice and prac­ti­cal sup­port for more than 250 pa­tients, rel­a­tives and car­ers ev­ery day.

Many of the events the fundrais­ing team has planned be­tween now and Christ­mas will have raf­fles and tombo­las – but the raf­fle cup­board is bare.

So this is where you come in. If you have any items that could be used as raf­fle or tombola prizes, Phyl­lis Tuck­well would very much ap­pre­ci­ate them.

Bot­tles, choco­lates, toi­letries and gift vouch­ers are par­tic­u­larly needed.

Gifts you may have been given for a birth­day or an­niver­sary, but which per­haps aren’t quite to your taste, are of­ten also ideal for a raf­fle prize.

Items can be dropped into the hos­pice in Farn­ham, the Bea­con Cen­tre in Guild­ford, or to any Phyl­lis Tuck­well shops in towns across its catch­ment area of West Sur­rey and North East Hampshire.

See for a list of shops.
