Andover Raffle

Janet Rolls and Jenny Gow, two dedicated charity fundraisers from Andover smashed their own fundraising target of £5,000 to reach a magnificent £6,500 with their hugely successful charity raffle in aid of the Charity.

The two friends embarked on their mission to raise much needed funds for the charity in November and in just 8 weeks managed to sell all 5,000 tickets as they spent every spare minute selling tickets locally, on Andover High Street, in Kenyon's Fruit & Veg shop, Wilkinson’s and at Basingstoke hospital.

The ladies received amazing support from locals and companies all over the area who donated prizes and enabled them to offer over 60 prizes worth well over £1,000 collectively.

Janet was determined to ‘put something back’ having been diagnosed with breast cancer. She was devastated when she was given the diagnosis and vowed to fight the disease. Janet has been receiving ongoing treatment as she’s worked on the raffle project such is her determination to make the cancer treatment journey easier for those that will follow her in the future.
