Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity is launching a new online raffle with some fabulous prizes to be won as part of its on-going fundraising efforts.

The raffle is now open and members of the public can get involved with the chance of winning some brilliant prizes whilst maintaining social distancing.

The proceeds will go towards the Charity’s work to fund specialist equipment, training and services going above and beyond the provision of the NHS to help improve treatment and facilities to benefit patients and their families.

The raffle includes a top prize of ‘A Leeds Rhinos Match Day Experience’. This includes a pair of tickets (valued at approximately £400) as guests of Members of the Leeds Rhinos Directors Club, to attend a Betfred Super League match at the Emerald Headingley Stadium, with a suitable date arranged with the recipient. This amazing prize includes collection and return transport to Emerald Headingley Stadium from a single address in the Harrogate district and match day hospitality.

There is also a £50 voucher which can be used on any treatment or hair consultation at Kin & Co Hairdressers in Harrogate, an exquisite unique hand painted duck egg, a luxurious day out with chauffer service from Yorkshire Executive Hire, and lots of packs of 12 x 250ml Slingsby solo gin ready mixed bottles!

Business Development, Charity and Volunteer Manager, Sammy Lambert, said: “A huge thank you to all the local businesses and individuals who are supporting our online raffle. We are hoping it proves popular and supports our important work raising funds for all the departments and services at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust.

“By entering our raffle, people are helping us do more for our colleagues, patients and their families during this difficult time. We are extremely grateful to members of the public who have been fundraising for Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity for supporting their local NHS.”
