Charity Raffle

This year our Charity Raffle was in aid of the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, Glasgow.   The Hospice provides specialist palliative care for people with a life limiting, progressive illness, and support for their families and carers.

A number of our exhibitors very generously donated a tempting array of prizes to our Charity Raffle, the Conference Committee are very grateful for their support and contribution.  Our lucky winners of those excellent prizes are here.
Thanks to everyone for helping us raise a whopping £950!
