Weddings are happy occasions, creating long-lasting memories as two people and their loved ones are joined together on one of the most important days of their life.

With wedding season fast approaching, we’re appealing to brides and grooms to consider making an additional long-lasting gift on their big day which will help them create special memories for local people too.

We have launched a new range of wedding and party favours, each containing a special ticket offering each guest the chance to win up to £2000 in the charity’s fundraising lottery.

Trudi Ogden, lottery manager, explained:  “The St Ann’s Local Lottery has been running for more than two decades, and we’re really excited that our newly designed favours offer a unique way for brides and grooms or party hosts to treat their guests.  Most importantly, the money paid for the favours makes a real difference to the lives of the local patients the hospice cares for.

“The favours cost just £1.50 each, and come in a range of classic designs.  Each has a unique lottery number included, which is then entered into one of our weekly St Ann’s Local Lottery draws.

“Each week, winners of the lottery receive prizes worth £2,500, and our main jackpot each Friday is £2000. So, by purchasing tickets in the form of our wedding or party favours, not only do local patients and their families definitely win, you never know, one of your guests might win too!”

Trudi added:  “St Ann’s has been providing care to hospice patients for almost half a century and can only do so thanks to the kind generosity of local people.

“We know that our supporters like to help our patients in lots of different ways, whether that’s visiting our shops, taking part in fundraising events, or playing our lottery.  It’s important to us that we continue to provide as many ways as possible for people to support us in caring for our patients, and these latest favours are just one of the new ways people can do just that.  We’re really excited to be able to play even a small part in someone’s big day.”

We also have our own specialist wedding shop on the High Street in Cheadle, complete with a range of new, pre-loved and vintage wedding and bridesmaid dresses, as well as hats, shoes and other accessories.
