Win A Diamond For Christmas
The Starbucks Diamond Raffle is offering up the chance to win a diamond for Christmas in aid of the Make It Better campaign for The Children's Hospital Charity.
Starbucks stores across Sheffield, and two in Hull, are asking customers to help Make it Better with a diamond raffle in aid of The Children’s Hospital Charity. The prize? An actual 0.40ct certified round diamond (with a design for a setting) worth £1000, kindly donated by Green and Benz independent jewellery company.
The money raised from the raffle will go towards the £25K sponsorship that Starbucks branches in Sheffield have pledged to the Make it Better appeal. Funds raised for this go towards transforming the hospital to make it even better for patients and their families. The Starbucks branches in Sheffield will fund a private bedroom in the new wing of The Children's Hospital.
The Make it Better appeal aims to raise £10m regionally by 2016 to help transform the hospital with more space, private bedrooms, a play tower and secure outdoor spaces.
David Vernon-Edwards, director of The Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “The new single occupancy bedrooms will help create privacy, as having space to recover from treatment and a good night’s sleep can make the world of difference. It means that parents can also get a good night’s sleep in a bed and not on a chair and families can stay together during their difficult time.We are so grateful to Starbucks for pledging to fund one of these bedrooms, and to Green and Benz for their generous support. It’s thanks to supporters like these that we are able to do what we do. ”
The winner will be announced at Starbucks Western Bank, on the day of its re-opening on Monday 22nd December. Runner-ups will also win a Starbucks hamper or a plush Theo Bear – The Children’s Hospital Charity mascot.
You can pick up raffle tickets from local Starbucks stores at Fargate, Orchard Square, Tudor Square, Western Bank, Ecclesall Road, Meadowhall, and the King Edward Street and St Stephen’s Centre stores in Hull.
