Winter Raffle 2021 Winners Announced!

We are very pleased to announce that the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Winter Raffle has raised an incredible £3,400 for the charity!

The raffle was drawn on Friday 29th January and the first prize of £500 was awarded to Ms Joanne Guy from Hockley in Essex.

Ms Guy said “I can’t tell you how delighted I was when I found out I had won first prize in the raffle! I never usually win anything so to win whilst supporting a fantastic charity really feels amazing! I plan to spend the money on a short break somewhere nice as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Joanne Guy our first prize winner

I have had personal experience of the great work the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity does when I was recovering from breast cancer in 2019. The ladies at their Southend Support Centre made me feel so welcome and I can’t emphasise how much it helped with my recovery; mentally and physically.  I also now have a new love for reflexology! I would urge anyone considering using their services to do so, you won’t regret it.”

Our second prize winner of the Wine Tasting Voucher went to Ms Gwen Pocock from Althorne.

Third prize of the Tiptree Hamper went to Ms Christine Snazell from Braintree.

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Marketing Coordinator Holly Butler said; “Congratulations to Ms Guy and our other raffle winners and a huge thank you to everyone who took part in our Winter Raffle and bought a ticket.

We are delighted to have raised over £3,400 which is enough money to fund 68 reflexology appointments. The work we do really does make a difference;

“I am so grateful for being introduced to this wonderful service and charity and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others facing cancer.” – client quote.

Our Raffle draw is a fun and yet valuable way in which to help our charity enable quality of life while living with cancer. We are delighted for Ms Guy and our other winners and we would like to thank them for taking part and supporting us.

Make sure to mark October 2021 in your diaries, when we will be releasing details for our 2021 Winter raffle draw where there’ll be another £500 top prize up for grabs!”
