Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Winter Raffle Winners Announced!

The Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Winter Raffle has raised an incredible £4,500 for the charity! Thank you ever so much to everyone who bought tickets and also sent additional donations.

The raffle was drawn on Friday 25th January at the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Fundraising Office and the first prize cheque 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 by Marketing & Communications Coordinator Holly Butler.

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 centre for making it a warm, welcoming and calm place to come."

Here is a list of our lucky winners…

First prize winner of £500 – ticket number 59838: Lynn P

Second prize winner of Michael Kors handbag – ticket number 21202: Nicole F

Third prize winner of luxury hamper – ticket number 34283: Louisa M
