Our Prize Draws

Our summer prize draw

14 September 2020

Every year we host prize draws, but this year, we're hosting more than usual, because this year has been unusual in itself. As charities across the board have struggled with fundraising due to event closures, we have also been affected.

Prize draws not only enable us to give back to our lifelong community, but allow us to be there for those who need it by raising much needed funds. In fact, many people who participate not only buy tickets, but also donate on top, which really helps us provide the support needed, as and when it's needed.

Read some of the stories of those we've helped.

The second prize draw of the year raised a total of £22,000, from ticket sales and donations combined, so thank you to everyone who got involved.

Below is a breakdown of the winners, and what they said about their wins:

"I am absolutely delighted in my good fortune and glad to give a little back to the Charity out of my winnings, as I've been paying in regularly for years and never increased my donation."
T Harper, retired civil servant

"I never believed this would happen to me. You always buy the tickets to support the Charity, but never expect to win. I'm away this weekend with all the family in the Cotswolds, so I'll buy them all a drink."
G Phillips, retired civil servant

"I never win anything, such a lovely surprise. We haven't really been anywhere this year, so I will take the family out for a meal to celebrate."
J Grocutt, HMRC
