Prizes to help Lister’s little patients

Children’s ward is urging people to part with a pound in a raffle to help its little patients.

The Lister Hospital children’s ward is holding an Easter raffle on April 27 when an Apple iPad, a spa break for two and �150 worth of Tesco vouchers will be up for grabs, as well as other prizes.

The money raised will help to support the work of the nurses and doctors on the ward to improve the lives of sick children.

Jacinta Dunlea, lead nurse, said: “Our team is dedicated to providing excellent care to our little patients, and we are very hopeful that the local community which is already so supportive and loyal to Lister Hospital will get behind us, buy a raffle ticket and ultimately support us to carry on meeting the needs of sick children locally.”

Rebecca Cheesman, from the fundraising team, added: “As well as appealing to local people to part with a pound and buy a ticket, we are looking for people who would like to get involved and volunteer for their local children’s ward, and help to promote raffle tickets to friends, family and colleagues - there is a small prize for the person who sells the most.”
