Hope House Hospice christmas raffle

The Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices Christmas raffle has its biggest ever prize with players able to win up to £10,000.

Money raised from sale of raffle tickets is vital to hospices as they face being £1.25 million down due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

For 2020 the hospices have joined forces with North Wales-based jewellers Clogau to offer the first prize winner £6,000, which can either be taken in a lump sum, or £500 a month.

The second prize is £2,500 and the third prize will be £1,500.

Simi Epstein, Director of Fundraising, said: “We were expecting to end the year with a massive shortfall in income, but further lockdowns in Wales, and now in England, are going to hit us even more with our charity shops closing once again.

“Every year we get fantastic support for our raffle, which plays a huge part in helping us provide care for the children and families who need us.

“This year it has taken on a new level of importance and we hope our supporters, who we have posted raffle tickets too, will be as generous as they’ve been in the past.

“We are also hoping that even more people who believe in what we do and who want to help in these challenging times will get behind us, go online and buy some tickets, and perhaps even win a spectacular prize!”

By buying a raffle ticket, which cost just £1 each, people will be helping support more than 750 local families who are either caring for a terminally ill child, or whose child has died.

Managing Director of Clogau Ben Roberts said: “We have been supporting the hospices for a number of years and I have, up until Covid-19, been a regular visitor, meeting the children and the families that use the services there.

“The hospices are very positive places.

“When you spend time getting to know the children and the staff you can really see the fantastic work that is being done and how much the impact the charity makes on people’s lives.”
