Local charity to benefit from four figure sum

West Sussex-based charity Springboard Project is set to benefit from a donation of £1,000, thanks to the generosity of local businesses and individuals who helped make the annual Horsham Football Club Christmas raffle another great success. Prize donations had been coming in over the past couple of months and, thanks to the sterling efforts of club officials and supporters, more than £2,000 worth of tickets were sold ahead of yesterday’s grand draw. A good number of supporters gathered to hear the results of the draw in the clubhouse following the Hornets’ Bostik League match with Guernsey, with Commercial Director Paul Osborn and committee member Mark Barrett overseeing things for which the club would like to thank them both. Our congratulations go to all our winners and, of course, our very grateful thanks to everyone that helped to make the draw such a big success.

A full list of winners is available on request from Osborn@btinternet.com
