Rachel Quinn, Fundraising Events Officer, Southern Area Hospice congratulates Maryvonne Le Roy. Looking on are Barry Donaghy, Operations Manager, Buttercrane Shopping Centre; Kristin Jameson, Marketing Manager, Autoline Insurance and Mark Topping, Sales Manager, Prentice Mini

“I bought the ticket in The Mall Shopping Centre in Armagh whilst visiting friends but never dreamed that I would ever win so I would like to thank Southern Area Hospice, Prentice Mini, Autoline and Buttercrane as this means a great deal.” Rachel Quinn, Southern Area Hospice Services said, “We are delighted to handover the Mini to Maryvonne and are pleased that the ‘Win a Mini Car Campaign’ continues to be supported from people both local and further afield.” At a time when many people are struggling we were delighted with how much support there was this year for the car draw as it is a vital part of our annual fundraising  objective for trying to raise £2.2 million to retain the level of service we currently provide at Southern Area Hospice. “We would like to thank everyone who bought tickets, all the volunteers who sold tickets and of course our sponsors.” Mark Topping from Prentice Mini, Kristin Aiken from Autoline Insurance Group and Peter Murray, Buttercrane Shopping Centre added their congratulations to Maryvonne for many happy years of driving and their best wishes for 2012. Runner up cash prizes of £500 and £250 went to John Northrop from Newcastle and Aine Burke from Keady respectively.
