Celebs have backed a raffle which will see a brand new Audi given away for CHAS

Some of Scotland’s best known names have come out to support a draw to win a brand new Audi A1 in an exclusive prize draw in aid of Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS).

The 71-plate Sportback 25 TFSI 5-speed model has been gifted to the charity by an anonymous donor and the draw has been organised by Dundee fundraising group J-Bay, led by dedicated CHAS fundraiser, Jackie Campbell. The likes of Lord of the Rings star Billy Boyd, Still Game’s Sanjeev Kohli, and comic Janey Godley have been beating the drum to make fans aware.

There are only 1,750 tickets up for grabs, which are available to buy now until the 31st of August at a cost of £25 each. You can purchase a ticket online.

The lucky winner will be able to choose which colour they would like their car to be painted and whether they would prefer a manual or automatic vehicle.

Laura Campbell, community fundraising development manager at CHAS, said: “We are delighted by the response to this magnificent prize draw so far and over the moon that Billy and Sanjeev have been able to spread the word. A limited number of tickets are left so we’d advise people to sign up quick to be in with a chance.

“With so many of our fundraising events cancelled because of the pandemic we are reliant on events such as this to raise vital funds. Every ticket sold will help us continue our work supporting children with life shortening conditions and their families across Scotland, who need our help now more than ever.”

Recent research commissioned by CHAS shows there are over 16,700 babies, children and young people in Scotland living with a life-shortening condition.
