fantastic, I never win anything!” was Katy Kelly’s response when we called her
to tell her she had won a case of Piggy
Bank Wine in our grand prize draw. Katy had a spinal cord injury in
2001 and took part in some of our courses initially as a participant and
subsequently as a group leader. She is also one of our amazing regular donors who are vital to allow Back Up to plan for the future.
prize was an all-inclusive holiday from Mark
Warner which was won by Clare Donoghue who was also thrilled with her
prize. Clare works for one of our corporate supporters, Snowdon Tate and ran the London Marathon
for us earlier this year raising over £1,000. We were delighted to be able to give something back to both Clare and Katy.
We also had
very happy winners of our Beats by Dre Headphones and our Fortnum & Mason
Champagne hamper donated by PI Costings.
obviously lots of other very worthy raffle ticket buyers out there and we’re
sorry everyone couldn't win! Rest assured though that the money raised will
make a big difference to Back Up and the people with spinal cord injury we
support . This year the ticket sales and associated donations raised over
£5,000 which could cover the cost for over 100 people to attend Back Up’s wheelchair
skills training sessions while in hospital. Thanks to everyone who bought
tickets this year and to our prize donors Mark Warner, PI Costings and Piggy
