RACS Group raffle raises over £10,000 for charity
RACS Group’s Annual Christmas Raffle raised a total of £10,287, the proceeds of which will be donated to six local charities. Hundreds of prizes ranging from TVs, mountain bikes, children’s toys plus a mountain of chocolates and drinks were won by many who took part.
The Raffle has evolved over the last four years into a significant fundraising event thanks to the effort and enthusiasm of the RACS Group staff who actually sell the tickets. This year’s chosen charities are:
- Wessex Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre
- Warminster & District Stroke Club
- Stepping Stones (Trowbridge)
- Dorothy House Hospice Care
- Bath Cats & Dogs Home
- Warminster & District Food Bank
Terry Hillier, managing director of RACS Group, commented, “The Raffle has become an integral aspect of the companies CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) strategy and heralds the start of the festive season within the company. I am truly grateful to all the staff who managed to sell over ten thousand tickets in under a month. I would also like to thank our suppliers many of whom bought tickets and contributed prizes.”
Many of the prizes still remain unclaimed and a full list of the winners can be viewed at www.racsgroup.com/raffle/winners-16/
The six chosen charities will receive their cheques from Hillier at RACS Group House in the New Year.
