Pratt and Gelsthorpe offer car in aid of Newark’s Beaumond House Community Hospice's fundraising drive
A new car is the prize on offer in a big raffle in aid of Newark’s Beaumond House Community Hospice.
The raffle will be launched at the hospice’s masquerade ball at Newark Showground on Saturday.
Beaumond House has joined forces with town motor dealers Pratt and Gelsthorpe to offer the prize of a three-door Peugeot 108 Active car, worth about £12,000.
Pratt and Gelsthorpe is celebrating 100 years in business this year, and managing director Mr Richard Gelsthorpe said supporting Beaumond House was the perfect way to mark the milestone.
“We have been in Newark for 100 years and we are all about keeping it local. Beaumond House is part of the fabric of Newark. It is a massive help to so many people and it is vital its work continues.”
Tickets to win the car cost £1 each, and Beaumond House’s fundraising and marketing manager, Cathy Lowe, said the charity hoped to sell 30,000 tickets.
Tickets will be available from Beaumond House, its shops, events throughout the year, and from Pratt and Gelsthorpe.
