2:08pm Thursday 26th December 2013 in Local
REDDITCH Shopmobility staff have thanked all their customers and friends and family after their biggest ever Christmas raffle.
A record-high 38 prizes helped raise £312 for the free service which helps people get around Redditch town centre.
All prizes were made from donations and one of the top prizes, a Christmas hamper made up of various contributions, was estimated to be to the value of £100.
Service users were invited to draw the winning tickets at Shopmobility, in the Kingfisher Centre’s car park 3, on Tuesday, December 17.
Shopmobility supervisor Barbara Krasniewicz said: “The Christmas spirit really took hold at Shopmobility, with the users of the service being invited to make the draw.
"We’ve been running this raffle since we started over 20 years ago but this year has been the best yet, and we’d like to thank everyone that so kindly donated."
