Each year, Saint Francis Hospice needs to raise £7.8 million to keep our doors open and our services up and running for local people. 


To do this, we need to raise money in whatever way we can and our twice-yearly raffles make a vital contribution. For example, for every two books of raffle tickets sold, we can cover the cost of an hour's stay on the Inpatient Unit.

"I was told I had secondary breast cancer just three weeks after marrying Kelly, the love of my life, on New Year's Eve.


It was a devastating blow. It felt like my world was flipped upside down and, instead of enjoying our time together as newlyweds, Kelly and I were suddenly facing a terminal diagnosis. It was pretty tough going, which is why during this time, my GP referred me to Saint Francis Hospice.


I honestly can't imagine what it would have been like to go through such a traumatic experience without this amazing charity. 


From the minute we stepped through the front door Kelly and I felt nothing but support, care and positivity from all the staff. I've benefitted from reflexology treatments and had excellent advice from the physio team on strengthening my back and improving my movement. And my Community Nurse Specialists also call me regularly to make sure I'm receiving the support I need. They have been incredible.


I'm still on daily medication but I'm delighted to say I'm now back at work and Kelly and I have both recently completed the London Marathon.


This may sound crazy but it's something I've always wanted to do and I didn't want to put it off any longer. Plus it was a chance to raise money for Saint Francis Hospice, which is something I'm determined to help with in whatever way I can.  


I hope you'll join me in this today by choosing to take part in this year's Summer Raffle. For every £1 ticket sold, we buy more time, more care and more expertise for someone who really needs it. Someone like me. 


Please play the Summer Raffle today."
