The NI Children’s Hospice in Glengormley has received a generous donation of £500 from local business Sandra’s Nursery Corner.

Staff at the Shore Road store have thanked everyone who supported their recent charity raffle in support of Horizon House.

The lucky winner was Edel McGuigan from Belfast, who won a Venicci All in One Travel System worth £599.

The special edition, denim grey, travel system includes chassis, seat unit, carrycot, changing bag, car seat, apron, rain-cover, insect net and cup holder.

Speaking on behalf of Sandra’s Nursery Corner, Erin Copeland said: “We were delighted to support NI Children’s Hospice through our charity raffle. We would like to thank all our customers who purchased a raffle ticket and supported this good cause. I know that the Children’s Hospice will put the money raised to good use caring for children and their families.”

Jenay Doyle, Community Fundraiser for NI Children’s Hospice said: “We would like to thank Sandra’s Nursery Corner for choosing to support our charity with their in-store raffle. We really appreciate their support and all the support that we receive from local communities which enables us to provide our much needed services for life-limited children and their families living in Northern Ireland who rely on our support.”

She added: “It costs approximately £3m to keep our services going, and with limited government funding we are totally reliant on corporate and community support to maintain our services. We truly appreciate all the support we receive and would like to take this opportunity to thank Sandra’s Nursery Corner and everyone who so generously supports the Children’s Hospice.”
