Shoppers at Haskins Roundstone raised almost £1,000 for the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance in a raffle to win a car, which will be drawn next week (Friday 31st March).

A grand total of £843.66 was raised in ticket sales and donations for the charity which relies almost entirely on public support to keep it flying.

Head of Lotteries & Gaming, James Cook, said: “We are extremely grateful to Haskins Roundstone for giving us a platform to raise awareness of the charity, and to the public for their fantastic support.”
