The Annual Christmas Charity Raffle 2018

AvantecareCare & Support

The Annual Christmas Charity Raffle

On Monday 17th December, Avante Care & Support Head Office Staff at De Gelsey House, Faversham, held their annual Christmas Charity Raffle, with all proceeds raised going towards the Avante Care & Support charitable fund.  

The Christmas Charity Raffle started with a splendid buffet lunch with many staff contributing home baked goods. In the weeks running up to the raffle, a Bauble competition was held where staff paid £1 per bauble and nominated a charity to receive the raised bauble funds. During the buffet the winning bauble was picked out randomly by Derek Lindars, HR Director, announcing this year’s winner to be The Samaritans, chosen by Customer Support Officer, Frances Lake. The Samaritans will receive £45 raised by the competition.

Derek also had the honour of hosting the annual 2018 Christmas Raffle. There was an array of top prizes that included an iPad Mini, a mix of luxury hampers, Kindle Fire, Galaxy Tablet, wine and much much more. There was plenty of cheer and surprise as names were called out. The lucky winners came from the care homes, home care service and Head Office, with the top prize being won by Wendy Shepherd of Bridge Haven care home.    


Lyndsay Hopper, Marketing Manager said, "I would like to thank all of the staff who supported and took part in the charity raffle and buffet. Congratulations to everyone who won prizes on the raffle, I am pleased to announce the Christmas Raffle has raised a total of £416 for the charitable fund which is an amazing sum of money, so thank you all.
