Who will win this year?
This year hundreds of households across Cork City and County have received tickets for our annual raffle, which this year will help us to upgrade the Hospital to make it more dementia-friendly. Over the coming weeks, people will be asked to dig deep to support the Raffle and be in with a chance to win one of our cash prizes!
Tickets for the Annual Raffle are €3 each or two for €5.
For every book of tickets sold, the seller will get a free complimentary ticket to enter the draw themselves!
The draw will take place on Friday 27th October with results published on this web page.
What difference will the raffle funds make to the patients?
Did you know that a hospital environment can have a negative impact on a person with dementia?
Everything around them is so different and unfamiliar. They can feel quite confused, scared and they
can even feel afraid.
Mary has dementia and when she was admitted to hospital she felt disorientated and afraid:
The biggest change will be improved signage so patients can find their way around easily. Our plan
is for welcoming wall colours along with clear signs to orientate and direct patients and visitors. We
will also have much better lighting at the end of dark corridors.The money you raise will transform
bland areas with clear bright colours and directions so patients like Mary will feel less disorientated
Now you can see why each ticket you sell is so important to us. By selling tickets you are making a
meaningful difference to our elderly patients.
Once you have sold your tickets, please send the completed stubs, money and reply slip to The
Mercy University Hospital Foundation in the FREEPOST envelope enclosed by Monday 23rd
Thank you for helping patients like Mary feel comfortable and happy during their time at The Mercy
