Tickets for the Summer Raffle cost just £1 per ticket. A book of twelve costs £12. You can buy them yourself or sell them to friends, family and colleagues (provided they’re over the age of 16). Every ticket is a chance to win one of our amazing prizes, whilst helping us to provide more outstanding care and support to people with life-limiting illnesses in our area.

The draw itself will take place on 27th September and all winners will be notified the following week. Good luck!

How your support makes a difference

Glenn Bowers

By purchasing tickets in our Summer Raffle, you will enable us to continue supporting local people who need our care. People like Glenn, who turned to us after being told the devastating news that his kidney cancer had returned…

“When I was told my kidney cancer had come back, and it was now at stage four, I was devastated. I went into a deep depression and I was so scared; I was constantly just bursting into tears, thinking I would never see my grandchildren grow up.

“I went to see my GP and she suggested I should contact St Clare Hospice. Just hearing the word “Hospice” panicked me even more, and I thought my illness must be even worse than I thought!

“My GP called the Hospice and made arrangements to have a home visit from St Clare Social Worker, Michele, who came and assessed me. When I opened the door to her, I was greeted with the warmest smile and a hug. It was like meeting an old friend; she put me at ease from the start. Michele and I spoke for ages, never once feeling rushed. She could see I was not in a good place, and invited me to come along to have a look around the Hospice…”
