Winners of the Ayrshire Hospice Christmas Raffle drive away with a brand new Vauxhall Corsa

We are delighted that the winner of 2017 Christmas raffle first prize, a stunning Vauxhall Corsa, is Mrs Barbara McMaster from Saltcoats. Mrs McMaster, known as Babs, along with her husband Ralph, son, Connor and daughter Shannon came to the Kerr & Smith dealership in Cumnock with their dog, Bronco to receive their brand new car.

Mrs McMaster said: “The Ayrshire Hospice is a charity close to our hearts.  We have had several family members who have been supported by the hospice and I buy the Christmas raffle tickets every year to give some support back.  It didn’t really sink in that I’d won the top prize until I was standing in front of the new car at Kerr and Smith’s dealership – it’s certainly a great incentive for me to learn to drive!” 

Kerr & Smith were the main sponsors of this year’s raffle along with Garrocher Tree Farm who kindly donated the second prize of £1,000, which was won by Mrs Ferguson from Ayr.

The Ayrshire Hospice Christmas raffle raises much-needed funds for the hospice every year. Buying raffle tickets is a great way to support the local charity and be in with a chance to win some fabulous prizes.

Agnes Paton, Assistant Fundraising Manager at Ayrshire Hospice said: “We are absolutely delighted with the response to the last Christmas raffle which has raised almost £37,000.  I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our wonderful supporters across Ayrshire and beyond for their fantastic support and of course a huge congratulations to all our winners. We are truly grateful to everyone who donated a raffle prize and particularly Kerr & Smith and Garrocher Tree Farm for sponsoring such fantastic prizes again this year.”
