Our Easter raffle raising money for the Oxford Children’s Hospital was a cracking success – with an eggs-cellent £170 raised.
The draw, held on the morning of March 23rd at Sainsbury’s Didcot, in this raffle organised by the store’s Lee Crook, saw a staggering 26 Easter eggs donated and with that 26 lucky winners bagging a delightful chocolate surprise.
The raffle which has run for this past month was held to support funds for the Children’s Hospital at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
Funds raised go towards all areas of children’s medical care at the Oxford hospital from the purchase of specialised medical equipment above and beyond the NHS standard, to upgrading of medical equipment, to toys to sensory to distraction items for children undergoing painful procedures to artwork that brightens up a children’s room or area, any aspect that makes a difference and brightens up the child and their families stay just that little bit more. Even additional parent beds have been purchased through public fundraising for the Oxford Children’s Hospital in the past.
Thanks to all the eggs-totally brilliant supporters who brought raffle tickets, and has edged Play2Give nearer to our goal of raising £40,000 for the hospital where we are now just £3,415 off from achieving this very special target to sponsor our own room on the Melanie’s teenage ward.
