Volunteers Sought for NHS Prize Draw in Aid of Maggie’s

Forth Valley Giving (NHS Forth Valley’s local charity) is looking for volunteers to sell tickets for their 2013/14 Annual Prize Draw to help raise funds for the new Forth Valley Maggie’s Centre.

All proceeds from this year’s Draw will be donated to Maggie’s in support of the new Maggie’s Centre which will be built in the grounds of Forth Valley Royal Hospital at Larbert.

Each Annual Prize Draw ticket is priced at £1 each and there are a range of fabulous prizes to be won. These include:

•    a 46″ LED Television
•    a weekend break for 2 at the Crieff Hydro
•    £250 ARGOS vouchers
•    £100 TESCO vouchers

Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre’s provide emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer, their friends and families in order to empower people to live with, through and beyond cancer.  All services are free and people do not need an appointment or a referral to attend.

Marion Taylor, Community Fundraiser for Maggie’s Forth Valley said:

 I am delighted that Forth Valley Giving has made Maggie’s their first charity to support and by raising funds through their annual prize draw it is a great way to do it. There are some amazing prizes to win so its definitely worth buying a book for £5. Good luck to everyone who takes part!”

Craig Holden, NHS Forth Valley’s Fundraising Manager, said:

 We need as many local people as possible to sell the Annual Prize Draw tickets on our behalf in order for us to raise money for Maggie’s.   All they need to do is contact us and we will provide them with tickets to sell to friends and family.  It really is a worthwhile cause and we hope local people across Forth Valley will support us.”

The draw itself will take place on the 18th December 2013.
