Wintery winners and a big thank you!

Happy New Year from the fundraising team at MS-UK! And what a brilliant subject to write our first blog post of 2017 on, our Winter Draw. This year with your help the Winter Draw raised £3,696!

Your Winter Draw entries looked a little like snow in our ticket container, and as we drew out the names of the winners there was certainly a similar feeling to the excitement of a white Christmas! To be able to give some great prizes back to our festive fundraisers who took part in the draw was an amazing feeling!

So, without further ado, I’d like to announce some of our lucky winners!

  • Our first prize of £1,000 went to Marion Heaton
  • Our second prize of an iPad Air 2 went to Gareth Hadland
  • And three of our five £50 M&S vouchers went to Graham Milner, Susan Gildner and Terri Williamson

Combined with everything you did for our Festive Frolic campaign you all raised over £6,000 for MS-UK!

We would like to say thank you to everyone that took part. Whether you bought a Winter Draw ticket, held a Festive Frolic for your friends and family or organised a bag packing event at your local supermarket, you helped raise vital funds to keep our services running!

If you want to find out more or have an amazing idea for a fundraiser in 2017, please get in touch with me by phone on 01206 226 500 or by email!

We are very much looking forward to 2017!
