Grand Raffle in aid of Peace Hospice Care22 Jan 2018
Those of you who know me will recognise that I am the ideal weight for my height…….or I would be if I was 6’11” tall! So, a new year and a new me! I am planning to lose a significant amount of weight, and become more fit and healthy at the same time.
If you have followed my previous posts you will also be aware that we are Silver Partners of Peace Hospice Care in Watford. However, you may not be aware that hospices in the UK only receive 20% of their financial requirement from the NHS and it is expected that they raise the balance through fundraising. For the Peace Hospice, it means they have to raise over £5m per year to be able to continue providing outstanding care to people with life limiting illnesses, and provide support to their families.
Every year they run a highly successful ‘Pounds for Pounds’ programme, and this year I am on it! The idea is that participants shed pounds (lbs) and the Peace Hospice gain pounds (££). In exchange, they provide expert nutritional advice and gym membership to encourage a lifestyle change. Two weeks in and I am eating more than I ate before, I have more energy and I have lost over 11lbs!!
To help raise much needed pounds (££) we are having a GRAND RAFFLE with some great prizes donated by suppliers:
** Cleaning product hamper
** £25 James Wellbeloved voucher
** Pet carrier
** Tub of 50 insect 'flavour' fat balls
** £25 Croxley Hardware voucher
** 30m hosepipe and fittings
** Plus much, much more.....
Tickets are only 20p each and there will be a grand draw featuring a local celebrity at 5pm on Monday 5 March 2018 with the winners announced here and on our Facebook page the following day.
Thank you so much, you could be helping to make a difference.
