Salisbury District Hospital Stars Appeal launch Christmas Raffle

A cash prize of £1,000 is the star prize in this year’s Stars Appeal Christmas Raffle, sponsored by FJ Chalke.

The second prize is £500, the third prize £250, plus many more cash prizes to be won!

Tickets cost just £1 each and are available both online at www.starsappeal.org, from Stars Appeal ticket sellers in the hospital’s main entrance and the Stars Appeal Bookshop at Salisbury District Hospital.

Money raised will help towards the £1million the Hospital Charity aims to raise each year to fund projects across Salisbury District Hospital.

These include 20 specialist cots for newborn babies costing £38,000, a £50,000 additional endobronchial ultrasound scope for the Respiratory Department to help diagnose patients with lung cancer and other related conditions, and a £15,000 mechanical CPR machine.

This is in addition to ongoing projects funded by the charity including provision of accommodation for parents of babies and children in hospital, support for patients with cancer, and free Wi-Fi. You can see full details of these projects and many more, at www.starsappeal.org/our-work/

Mr Graham Branagan, Consultant Surgeon at Salisbury District Hospital and Chair of the Appeal Ambassadors, said: “By taking part in the Christmas raffle you will be helping the Stars Appeal to do more to support patients and staff at our Hospital. We couldn’t do it without you, thank you!”

George Chalke, Dealer Principal of FJ Chalke, said: “Having seen first-hand how local people benefit from projects funded by the Stars Appeal, like the breast unit, new scanners and accommodation for parents with poorly children and babies, we are delighted to continue our support for this amazing charity.”

Online entries will close on January 4th. Paper ticket stubs must be returned to the Stars Appeal by January 8th. The draw will take place on January 11th 2024; winners will be announced at starsappeal.org
