The Dame Vera Lynn Trust has launched a Grand Raffle to run throughout 2015 which is a new and exciting major fundraising initiative for the charity.

Carole Whorwood from the Trust said “We hope that our raffle will generate much needed funds for our charity to enable us to continue with the vital service we provide to our families at our School for Parents here in West Sussex.

“As well as supporting our charity you will be in with a chance to win some fantastic prizes - first prize £1,000, second prize large screen TV and third prize an overnight stay at Hilton Hotel in London. Local estate agents Guy Leonard and Co are kindly sponsoring our raffle and we would like to thank them for their support”.

Raffle tickets are £1 each or £5 for a book of five tickets and can be purchased from the Trust office in Five Oaks, Charity shop in Southwater, Guy Leonard and Co Estate Agents in Storrington, Pulborough and Horsham and HSBC branches in the Worthing area.
