Nescot’s Animal Studies department is holding a Christmas raffle to raise money for a local cancer charity.
The first prize is a hamper containing festive treats such as mince pies, candles and sweet treats, and the second is a bottle of vodka, with all donations going to the Sutton-based Royal Marsden.
Last year the raffle raised £150 for the Alzheimer’s Society and Stand Up to Cancer, and organiser Anna Grimshaw is hoping for similar success this year.
“We just want to do what we can to raise money, and hopefully people are as generous and supportive as they were last year,” said Anna, the Animal Care Unit technician.
“I’m proud to be supporting The Royal Marsden, which is a brilliant charity that does so much to help people in our community as well as across the UK.”
To buy tickets, students and staff can call Anna on her extension, and visitors can come to the college reception.
The Royal Marsden, which has facilities in Sutton and Chelsea, is the largest specialist cancer centre in Europe, and treats more than 50,000 NHS and private patients each year.
The trust has an international reputation for its work in diagnosis and education, and its pioneering research into new treatment and technology.
Since 2004, supporters have helped raise more than £100 million to build theatres, diagnostic centres and drug development units.
