Grand Summer Raffle raises £41,500 for St Christopher’s

Mrs Joy Lever celebrates winning first prize of a £2,000 Virgin Gift Card

St Christopher’s first Grand Summer Raffle was drawn on 6 July 2016 at 2.30pm in the Anniversary Centre, St Christopher’s Hospice, with Mrs Joy Lever of West Wickham winning first prize of a £2,000 Virgin Gift Card.

Thanks to everyone who purchased tickets for the Grand Summer Raffle. The raffle was a huge success raising a fantastic £41,500 for St Christopher’s!

Christine Davies, Individual Giving Manager, presented Mrs Lever with her prize on the day of the draw.

Mrs Lever was surprised and delighted to win. She had even forgotten about buying the tickets!

She began supporting the hospice after she survived cancer herself and wanted to give something back. She saw an article in the local paper calling for volunteers to knit Easter chicks and she has been knitting ever since.
