Great Ormond Street Christmas Raffle

Great Ormond Street
It has been proposed that we hold a charity raffle in December.  The recipient of all monies raised will be Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.
Tickets are now on sale in the bar.  The cost is £1 per ticket and all the proceeds will go to the charity.  
The Raffle will be called on the 20th December at 11.00am at the coffee morning.   If you are unable to be there and you win, then your prize will be set aside for you, however, please all try to come along for the event!
We are asking if folks would be kind enough to donate good quality items for the Raffle.  Anything from a hamper (perhaps a group could get together for this) to a box of chocs, offers of shopping for people or lifts, perhaps, even offer your services as a cleaner/window cleaner/ironing service, dog walker for a few hours?   
All of your ideas and gifts would be appreciated!  Reply by email to the residents association
There will also be an array of items gifted from outside of the Park, more to be confirmed, but a taster of what has been donated so far...
