Win A Car week 2

Seven more local charities will be in the Eastbourne Arndale Centre this week to take part in the annual Win A Car for Christmas event.
The RNLI starts off the week on Friday followed by East Sussex Motor Neurone Disease Association (Saturday), Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance (Sunday), People Matter (Monday), Eastbourne Epilepsy Group (Tuesday), The National Deaf Children’s Society (Wednesday) and ABC Fund (Thursday).
Each charity will be selling tickets for just £1 with every penny going directly to that charity’s worthy cause. So, whatever the charity raises that day is theirs because there are no administration charges for the event.
Now in its 17th year, this annual event has raised a staggering £291,000 for local charities since it was started in 2000.
The event will run until Christmas Eve when the winning ticket will be chosen and one lucky winner will receive a phone call to tell them that a brand new £7,000 Suzuki Celerio will be theirs for Christmas.
For many of the charities, Win A Car can raise hundreds of pounds AND raise their profile so that more people are aware of what they do.
Earlier this week, one of the charities taking part was Citizens Advice Eastbourne, which provides free confidential and impartial advice to local people, with the goal of helping everyone find a way forward, whatever problem they face. Based in St. Leonards Rd, Eastbourne, the group is responsible for its own fundraising.
Eastbourne Arndale Centre Manager Bill Plumridge said: “It’s been a great start to Win A Car. Don’t forget to buy your ticket when you’re in the Centre. One person has got to win a brand new car for Christmas!”
