On Monday 19 November 2018, the winning tickets of the Fourth Annual Autumn Raffle were drawn by Coventry Lord Mayor John Blundell in his office at the Coventry City Council.
With 4,414 tickets in the draw, the Lord Mayor commented on the success of the raffle.
The first prize this year went to Mrs Lynda Roskruge who won a brand new 40″ HD TV. The second prize went to Mrs Wendy Elizabeth Smith who won four tickets to a Warwickshire One Day Cup Game which was very kindly donated by Edgbaston Stadium. Ten prize winners were drawn in all and are listed below.
Haemochromatosis UK – which supports patients affected by genetic haemochromatosis (also known as iron overload disorder) is one of the Coventry Lord Mayor’s chosen charity of the year.
David Head, Chief Executive at HUK said, “We are delighted that we are one of the Lord Mayor’s charities of the year and are thankful for his support in all of our endeavours, such as the raffle draw!”
David added, “This is the fourth year of the raffle in what has been a hugely successful year for Haemochromatosis UK. I would like to thank everyone that purchased the raffle tickets as the draw enables us to raise awareness of GH and support patients”.
