Grand Raffle 2014

 the current financial climate, many small charities are beginning to feel the squeeze, and although we are not in any immediate danger, WAF is also noticing the effects of the recession, and especially with the decision to cancel Open Day our income this year will be noticeably lower that in previous years.  
Sadly of course, costs are spiralling upwards, so every month that goes by presents new challenges in trying to run the hospital as efficiently as possible.  We are incredibly indebted to everyone who has supported us during these difficult times, and hope that you will be able to continue to do so until the sun comes out again!
Can you help us by selling some raffle tickets? Or by giving them to your friends and family to sell on our behalf?  Why not take a few books into work, or give them to your children to take into school?  Or maybe you could advertise them on your Facebook page and see how many of your friends can get involved?  If you can sell all your tickets then maybe we can go some way towards making up for Open Day!!
If you would like to help us then please just call the office and we’ll send some straight out to you.  Last year we raised just under £10,000, although in years gone by we have raised as much as £17,000!
Let’s see if we can beat the recession!!
Thank you.

Have you seen this year’s prizes?  Good, huh?  I’m sure that you, your friends and family would be delighted with an iPad Air.  Or maybe a brand new Sony DVD/Blu-ray player?  Perhaps you’d prefer a surprise and the goodie hamper will be yours… or of course a shopping spree at John Lewis, spending those lovely vouchers!

Thank you.
