    Pilgrims Lottery 40th Birthday Celebratory Christmas Draw

    Every year, Pilgrims Hospices Lottery team ask the community to spread some Christmas cheer by purchasing their annual Pilgrims Hospices Christmas Prize Draw tickets.

    This year, the much-loved local charity is celebrating its 40th birthday, with a guaranteed prize fund of £4,040 including a first prize of £2,040. All prizes will be sent out to the lucky winners in time for Christmas! They are asking the local community buy a ticket or two to help with continued support for Pilgrims’ end-of-life patients across east Kent.

    Shiralee Riddell, Pilgrims Lottery Manager told us: “We recently posted tickets to our Pilgrims Lottery members and supporters, the response so far has been very encouraging.

    “We care for people with illnesses that cannot be cured, our services are provided free of charge for our three sites in Canterbury, Ashford and Thanet, within our Therapy Centres and in patients’ own homes; our care is also extended to families and carers .”

    £25 will pay for an hours’ specialist nursing care in one of our in-patient units.

    £15 goes towards mini toiletries for a patient who needs them.

    £12 gives a patient staying in one of our hospices a delicious meal on Christmas day.
