As part of our festive celebrations, we were delighted to hold a fundraising Christmas raffle in aid of the Hospice.

Tickets were sold at the Hospice shop in Newcastle Emlyn, the Hospice Craft and Open Day and through our gallant team of volunteers, who braved the wintry conditions to spread the word and sell some tickets.
