The car is the top prize in a raffle to raise money for the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, based in Backford.

Margaret Wright, Chief Executive of the Hospice of the Good Shepherd and Cath Garrod, Staff Nurse, Hospice In-Patient unit revealed the winning ticket number.

The winner has been informed and is said to be “delighted”.
