As I have mentioned a number of times before, sadly we only get 7% of our funding from the government.
That means we have to find 93% of our running costs ourselves and our lovely fundraisers have to come up with many different ways of raising funds for us.
One way you could support the work we do is to join the Chestnut Lottery.
For just £4.34 per month you could be part of our weekly lottery, drawn every Friday, with the chance to win our top prize of £1,000 every week. There are 22 other cash prizes up for grabs too, and we even send out the winning cheques on draw day so there is no need for you to claim them.
What can you buy for £4.34 a month that is really worthwhile? Not very much.
When you join, we will give you a unique 6 digit number which will be sent to you by post and will remain yours for as long as you wish.
Your unique number will automatically be entered into the draw each week, providing payment has been made.
Every Friday, our special Lottery computer selects 23 winning numbers from all those taking part in the Lottery.
If you become one of our Lottery members, you will be paying towards one in every five days of care both at Chestnut Tree House and in your community.
We call it ‘win if you do, win if you don’t’. I hope you agree.
Joining couldn’t be simpler. Just log on to www.chestnutlottery.org.uk and join online, or call our Lottery team on 01903 871842 to ask for a leaflet.
