A CASH prize of £1,000 is up for grabs in this year’s Stars Appeal Christmas Raffle.
The annual competition sees funds raised for the charity, which funds a range of projects at Salisbury District Hospital.
Second prize in the festive draw is £500, third prize £250, with more cash prizes also on offer.
Tickets cost £1 and are only available online, via www.starsappeal.org.
Money raised by the raffle will help towards the £1 million that the Stars Appeal aims to raise this year to fund projects helping thousands of patients and the NHS staff who care for them.
These include state-of the art equipment, hospital chaplaincy, free WiFi, accommodation for parents of babies and children, entertainment and companionship for older people, and support for the hospital’s hard-working staff.
Graham Branagan, consultant surgeon at the hospital and chair of the Appeal Ambassadors, said: “The raffle is a brilliant opportunity to support the Stars Appeal, our hospital’s charity, with the chance of winning some cash this Christmas.
“The money raised will help make a difference for our patients and staff. Thank you for your support and wishing you a very happy Christmas.”
Jo Maslen, volunteer fundraiser, added: “We hope that our thousands of supporters will buy tickets, and help us spread the word by inviting their friends, families and colleagues to take part.
“It only takes a minute to buy your tickets. You could win £1,000 and you’ll definitely be making a difference for patients and staff in our hospital this Christmas.”
