Over 5000 tickets for the Draw had been sold to parishioners, family and friends, and together we raised just under £1300 for church funds - a splendid achievement. Every penny will go towards supporting the life and work of St Mary's, as all the costs of the Draw were covered by the generosity of those who supported the ten monthly raffles earlier in the year.
The lucky first prize winner received £200 cash, and other prizes included a ride in a Rolls Royce with afternoon tea for two, six bottles of fine wine, a luxury Christmas hamper, a hand-knitted Aran sweater to be made to the winner's requirements, and vouchers kindly donated by Sherbourne House, Ry's Bar and Grill and the Rose of India.
All the prize winners have now been contacted.
Many thanks to all for their generous support... and, if you didn't win this time round, there's always next year!
