RW Armstrong Christmas Raffle Raises £2,514

Local building company RW Armstrong has raised an impressive £2,514 for the Hampshire Medical Fund with their Christmas Advent Daily Raffle.

Now in its third year, the Advent Daily Raffle adds a little festive cheer on the run-up to Christmas. The company purchases two tickets per person, then during November employees can purchase additional tickets for £1 each by making a donation to Hampshire Medical Fund. In the true spirit of an advent calendar, the prize winners are selected at random each day from the 1st to the 24th of December.

The majority of the prizes have been donated by generous suppliers, which this year included an iPad, an Apple watch, a Fortnum & Mason Christmas Hamper, an LG 43″ Ultra HD 4K TV and hundreds of pounds worth of vouchers for John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Amazon.

Last year the raffle raised £1,904 and this years target of £2,000 was well and truly beaten!

Thank you RW Armstrong for helping us to support our local Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This amazing contribution has enabled us to buy a fantastic new piece of therapy equipment for Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital.

If you are one of our supporters reading this and would like to participate in similar fundraising events, or have done so already to raise funds for our charity, please do get in touch with us. It’s all for a great cause that can change peoples lives.
