Raffle tickets are now on sale for £2 each, available on the Pendleside website or by contacting the hospice’s fundraising department.

The draw will take place on Saturday, October 16th, at Pendleside Hospice

This year’s car supplier, Perry’s Nelson, have sponsored the raffle alongside Alderson and Horan Funeral Services, Fuelcard Services, Macadam, Whitford Caravan Centre and Burnley and Pendle Freemasons.

Pendleside head of marketing and events Sammi Graham said: “The car raffle just wouldn’t be possible without the support from our sponsors and we’re so grateful to them for helping us make this happen.

"The car raffle is always a popular fundraiser and we’ll be out and about selling tickets over summer. We raised more than £40,000 last year by selling car raffle tickets and we’re hoping to raise as much, if not more, this time around."

Car raffle tickets are priced at £2 each and are available at pendleside.org.uk or by calling the fundraising department on 440120.

Pendleside can also issue raffle ticket books if people want to help sell even more tickets to family, friends and colleagues – just call the hospice to get involved.
