Christmas raffle lucky winner

Posted on 21 December 2018 by Katie Ronald

We are delighted to announce that the winner of this year’s Christmas raffle first prize, seven nights for two people in Las Vegas, goes to Brian Dodson from Kilmarnock.  

Brian along with his wife Maureen, visited LAH Travel in West Kilbride recently to book up their exciting trip and toast their amazing win.

Brian Dodson said: “My wife, Maureen, and I would like to thank everyone involved at the hospice in organising the Christmas raffle.  This is the first time we have won a major prize in any competition.  Also thanks to Linda and the team at LAH Travel.  Linda has been very good in helping us to get a date and accommodation for our trip to Vegas.  She has also made some good suggestions on how to best enjoy our seven days there!  I am sure we will be in touch after the New Year to start planning our trip

“We visited Vegas for 3-nights almost 20-years ago and never thought we would have the opportunity to visit again.  We look forward to going back and revisiting the Grand Canyon.  This holiday is 7-days long and so gives us much more time to explore the area in and around Vegas, which we are looking forward to.” 

The Ayrshire Hospice has raised over £27,390 in this year’s Christmas Raffle which will go directly towards providing exceptional care and services to patients and families.

Ron Swanson, Assistant Fundraising Manager at the Ayrshire Hospice said “We have been delighted with the response to this year’s Christmas Raffle and would like to thank all of the amazing communities across Ayrshire who kindly purchased tickets.  This is an incredible prize that has been donated and thank you also to Linda Hill Miller at LAH Travel for her professional and valued support of the hospice.  It was great to meet up with Brian and Maureen and share their exciting news.  We wish them every enjoyment for their trip and can’t wait to see their Vegas holiday snaps!”
