St Ann’s Hospice has launched a new range of wedding and party favours.
Each favour contains a special ticket offering each guest the chance to win up to £2,000 in the charity’s fundraising lottery.
Trudi Ogden, lottery manager at the hospice, explained: “The St Ann’s Local Lottery has been running for more than two decades, and we’re really excited that our new favours offer a unique way for brides and grooms or party hosts to treat their guests.
“Most importantly, the money paid for the favours makes a real difference to the lives of the local patients the hospice cares for.
“The favours cost just £1.50 each, and come in a range of classic designs. Each has a unique lottery number included, which is then entered into one of our weekly draws.
“Each week, winners of the lottery receive prizes worth £2,500, and our main jackpot each Friday is £2,000.”
The hospice, which cares for people from across Greater Manchester with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, also has its own specialist wedding shop in Cheadle, Stockport, complete with a range of new, pre-loved and vintage wedding and bridesmaid dresses, as well as hats, shoes and other accessories.
Trudi added: “St Ann’s has been providing care to hospice patients for almost half a century and can only do so thanks to the kind generosity of local people.
“We know that our supporters like to help our patients in lots of different ways, whether that’s visiting our shops, taking part in fundraising events, or playing our lottery.
“It’s important to us that we continue to provide as many ways as possible for people to support us in caring for our patients, and these latest favours are just one of the new ways people can do just that. We’re really excited to be able to play even a small part in someone’s big day.”
