People could win £5,000 in Rainbows Big Christmas Raffle

We have launched our Big Christmas Raffle and people could scoop the top prize of £5,000.

Now in its 10th year, the raffle - which was previously known as the Superdraw - plays a crucial part in raising the necessary funds needed to keep our hospice running each year. Last year’s Superdraw raised £27,000 for our work. As well as the top prize of £5,000 – which has been increased from £3,000 - cash prizes of £250, £100 and £50 are up for grabs.
