A lucky St Giles Hospice supporter will start 2020 by winning £8,000 or a new car in our winter fundraising raffle – but anyone wanting to be in with a chance will have to act fast.

Players have until Monday 6th January 2020 to buy tickets for the raffle, which helps to fund our work supporting patients with potentially terminal illnesses and their families.

It costs more than £10 million to provide the care St Giles offers to the community every year and the hospice believes that there are another 1,000 people locally who could benefit from its specialist care if funds were available.
