Lifelites raffling the ultimate library of 100 signed books to raise money for children in hospices

LIFELITES is giving one lucky bookworm the chance to win The Ultimate Library of 100 signed books

The prize, which is a once in a lifetime opportunity, will be given away as part of an online raffle hosted on givergy.com, and tickets will cost just £5 each. That’s equivalent to just 5p per book, but to a book lover the prize will be priceless, as every single one is signed by the author or illustrator. Everyone who buys a ticket will also be helping to support the charity’s work providing and maintaining specialist technology to children in hospices across the British Isles.

The 100 signed books cover just about every genre including crime, romance, fantasy, historical, biographical, mystery, comedy, political, poetry, food, travel, and thriller.

Among the authors who have kindly donated are Jeffrey Archer, Julian Barnes, Alan Bennett, Tony Blair, Bernard Cornwell, Jonathan Dimbleby, Max Hastings, Douglas Hurd, P D James, John Le Carré, Michael Palin, Jeremy Paxman, Malcolm Rifkin, Stella Rimington and Ann Widecombe, among others.     

As well as the top prize of 100 signed books, there will also be a second prize. The list of books in each prize can be found on the Lifelites website: http://www.lifelites.org/get-involved/enter-one-of-our-raffles/ultimate-library-of-100-signed-books

Every penny raised will support Lifelites’ work to enhance the lives of terminally ill and disabled children in hospices through the power of technology. The charity donates and maintains cutting-edge, accessible equipment to give these children with limited lives unlimited possibilities. The equipment, staff training and ongoing support costs Lifelites over £1,000 a month per hospice but the charity donates this completely free of charge. 

Fundraising and PR manager Dominic Hourd said: 'Lifelites is so excited to be offering this prize. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. We are extremely grateful to every author who has kindly donated a signed book. Each one will help us raise money for all 10,000 terminally ill and disabled children in hospices across the British Isles.'

The raffle is live now and will end on February 10th. Visit the Givergy website to buy tickets: https://www.givergy.com/listing/lifelites/win-the-ultimate-library-of-100-signed-books
