Win £5,000 in the St Barnabas Winter Raffle with £1 entry!

26th January 2024

By playing the St Barnabas Winter Raffle you are not only supporting local Hospice care, but you will also be in with a chance to win the biggest top prize to date of, £5,000!

Becky Franks is Director of Patient Care at St Barnabas Hospice and encourages people to get involved with the raffle this January.

Becky says: “If you have known anyone who has received care from St Barnabas, you will know how passionate we are about supporting those who need us. We believe everyone in Lincolnshire with a life-limiting or terminal illness deserves high-quality, dignified, compassionate care.

“We have ambitious plans to care for more people, but this will not be possible without your help. We have experienced spiraling costs of running our Inpatient Unit, Wellbeing Centres and Hospice at Home care. By playing the raffle, you can help clinical staff like me make a real difference to our patients and their families during a difficult time in their lives.

“Our nurses see the benefits of our care in the final weeks and days of a patient’s life. Not only are they more relaxed, but loved ones can be there with them. Our team work incredibly hard to ensure patients and their family feel as comfortable and supported as possible, organising last wishes, and taking the pressure off family members.”

Ann, wife of Pete – a St Barnabas patient, supports this sentiment. She says: “I felt like St Barnabas let me become a wife again. I had been consumed by looking after my husband, Pete, but as soon as the St Barnabas nurses came in, I could just focus on being a wife and saying my goodbyes. I will never be able to say enough thank yous to them.”

Becky says: “By playing the raffle you are not just supporting clinical staff like me to continue providing vital care to patients, like Pete, you are also giving yourself the opportunity to win an amazing cash prize!”

The first prize of £5,000 would be a great help to you; it could pay for a holiday, home improvements or simply pay off some bills, the choice is yours!

St Barnabas offers 3 chances to win, with the second prize being £500 and the third prize at £250. Tickets are available to purchase on the Hospice’s website, in all charity shops and wellbeing centres across the county, at just £1 each with no minimum spend.

The raffle will be drawn on Wednesday 27th March, with entries closing the Friday before, 22nd March. Sign up today for the Winter Raffle by visiting the St Barnabas website.

Becky continues: “On behalf of the Hospice’s care team and all St Barnabas staff, thank you for playing our raffle. More people seek our help each year, and we want to be able to support them in their time of need now and into the future, which thanks to your help we can look forward to.

“I wish you the very best of luck!”
