Galway University Hospitals raffles to raise money for Arts Trust

Galway University Hospitals are holding a new series of raffles to raise money for the hospitals’ Arts Trust.

The raffle draws will be held over four weeks in November and December with weekly prizes of up to €200, and €750 up for grabs at the grand finale.

Margaret Flannery, Arts Director with Saolta said, “We are hoping the hospital community will get behind this fundraiser in support of the arts programme.”

“We have exciting programmes planned for 2019 in the Saolta Group; including developing a play for children with A Dog and String Theatre and Little Barn Theatre for the paediatric departments across the group”

The 2019 arts programme will also include artists in residence, a Poet Doctor, and creative art and creative writing workshops for patients in hospital for longer stays.

All money raised through the raffle will go towards funding next year’s arts programme for Galway’s hospitals and expand its reach into more wards and units.

The four draws will take place each Friday from November 16 through to December 7.

For the first three draws first prize is €200, second prize is €100, and third prize is €50.

At the grand final draw the first prize of €750, second place will take home €200, and the third prize is €100.

All draws will take place in the lobby of UHG at 1pm, and for €10 a person can be entered into all four draws.

Raffle cards are available from the GUH Arts Trust office, and must be returned by November 12 to take part.

Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust run the west of Ireland’s leading Arts and Health programme as a means of improving the hospital experience for patients, staff and visitors.

The arts trust believes access to the arts promotes well-being and enhances the hospital environment.
