Wildlife Rescue Ambulance Service Autumn Raffle raises £900

A raffle organised by East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) has raised £900 towards helping wildlife casualties.

The WRAS Autumn raffle draw was delayed for a week due to the postal dispute. Eastbourne’s Mayor, Mary Pooley, picked all the winning tickets with Keith Sharpin taking the first prize of an overnight theatre break in London. The prize draw raised £900 for WRAS. It was sponsored by Jacqui Ridler, personal cruise and travel advisor for Co-Op Travel who can be contacted on 01323 743215.

"This is the first time we have run a raffle like this and I am delighted that so much money has been raised, I would especially like to thank Jacqui and Co-op Travel for helping to sponsor the event and thank everyone who purchased a ticket" said Trevor Weeks.

East Sussex WRAS are in the process of trying to equip a special Casualty Care Centre at Horsebridge near Hailsham and still need vital equipment to help get the unit fully up and running.
