Christmas raffle winners

07 December 2017
A Christmas raffle has raised nearly £25,000 for Martin House Hospice.

The winners picked up their prizes from Martin House, with the top prize of a £1,000 John Lewis voucher going to Wakefield woman Diane Cowling.

She said: “I always buy a ticket every year, and it was a lovely surprise to win. I’m going to get a few Christmas presents and also a little treat for myself.”

Second prize, an iPad, was won by Mary McGettigan of Thorp Arch, who said: “I’m really looking forward to using it.”

Grant Wraige, of Wetherby, won the final prize, a luxury hamper, said: “We’ve got seven for Christmas dinner and 13 a couple of days later, so this will come in handy.”

John Haigh, corporate fundraiser, said: “We hope these prizes help to make Christmas even more special for our winners – and we’d like to thank everyone who bought a ticket, as the money raised will help us to create special festive memories with our families.

“We’d also like to thank our sponsor CNG Ltd, as their support means all the money raised from the raffle goes directly to supporting families in this area.”

Paul Waite, sales and marketing director at CNG Ltd, said: “We are absolutely delighted to sponsor the Christmas raffle. We think the work Martin House does is unbelievable and we are proud to support it in this way.”
