Helen Rollason Cancer Charity launches their Winter Raffle!

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity have recently launched their Winter Raffle with the chance to win fabulous prizes and a top prize of £500! It’s so simple to play and you will be helping to enable quality of life while living with cancer.

There are three exciting prizes to be won:

1st £500

2nd Christmas Hamper

3rd £40 Meal Voucher for The Lion Inn, Boreham

Tickets cost only £1 each and the closing date is Wednesday 22nd January 2020.

Last year, the raffle raised an incredible £4,500 for the charity! The raffle was drawn on Friday 25th January 2019 at the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Fundraising Office and the first prize of £500 was won by Lynn Power from Harlow. Lynn visited our Bishop’s Stortford Support Centre at the Herts & Essex Hospital to be presented with her cheque.

A client herself, Lynn knows first-hand what a difference the charity can make;

“Once a month I lay down on the HRCC couch at the Bishop’s Stortford Support Centre with Claire my therapist and I talk about my hopes, my worries, my feelings while she gives me a reflexology treatment. After the session I come out of the little room feeling like I’m walking on air; it gives me a real lift.

I would like to thank everyone at the charity for making it a warm, welcoming and calm place to come.”

To purchase your own tickets and be in with a chance of winning up to £500 visit our website http://www.helenrollason.org.uk where you can purchase them online or call 01245 380719 to pay over the phone.

Delivered by Reach Every Generation, the session will cover the risks around child exploitation and gangs from a real-life perspective.
