Maggie’s Fife Launch ‘Staycation’ Raffle!

Maggie’s, the charity which provides free practical and emotional support for people living with cancer in Fife, is delighted to announce that it is hosting its first ever ‘Staycation’ Raffle.

The Raffle will go live on Friday 11th June and will run until midnight on Friday 2nd July. Entries cost just £10 with the chance to win luxury prizes including 5 Star overnight stays at the Fairmont St Andrews, DoubleTree by Hilton – Queensferry Crossing, Cameron House, and Fingal. There is also the opportunity to win a Cocktail Masterclass at The Adamson, St Andrews as well as Afternoon Tea for two at the Fairmont.

If the chance to win one of these amazing prizes whilst supporting Maggie’s doesn’t get you rushing to get a ticket, then this certainly will… After a successful match funding initiative last Christmas, Smith Anderson Group have generously agreed to match the first £4k raised through the raffle!

Adam Kent, Centre Fundraising Manager at Maggie’s Fife said: “With many of us likely to be staying in sunny Scotland this summer, it seemed appropriate to celebrate some of the incredible hospitality available on our doorstep. We have teamed up with some top establishments to create the Maggie’s Staycation Raffle and we are delighted that Smith Anderson have once again agreed to support us by match funding this initiative up to £4k – We’re truly grateful for their ongoing backing. Centre fundraising remains extremely challenging, so our hope is that with the raffle we have found an exciting and accessible way for people to support Maggie’s and all those who use the centre. Hopefully, people will be feeling lucky and will treat themselves as there are some amazing prizes up for grabs.”

Olivia Slater, Sales Director at Smith Anderson said: “We love being able to work with this amazing charity and we’re excited to be involved with the Maggie’s Staycation Raffle this summer. Maggie’s Fife has an incredible team in Kirkcaldy who have supported many of our employees over the last decade and we are delighted to give them our ongoing support as our chosen charity”.
