Rochdale-based charity Health Aid UK has held its annual Christmas draw at its shop on the strand in Kirkholt.
Health Aid UK raises funds for health projects across the world and runs an annual Christmas draw each year as part of the fundraising activities it is involved with.
The winning ticket was pulled out by Councillor Dale Mulgrew.
Health Aid UK’s principal officer, Anne McNicholas, said: “Our Christmas draw is an annual fixture in our fundraising calendar and I was delighted that Councillor Mulgrew could come along and perform the duty of pulling out the winning tickets.”
“Health Aid UK has had a shop on the Strand for a number of years and we continue to maintain our presence within Kirkholt. All of our fundraising enables Health Aid to sponsor and support much needed health projects in places such as Romania and some of the under developed countries in Africa.”
Councillor Dale Mulgrew said: "I was pleased to be asked to draw this year's raffle and support such a great local charity. Health Aid UK has a real presence on Kirkholt and its success there has been matched by a recent move to a larger shop unit on the Strand. The charity has a great team of volunteers and the shop is well supported by the local community.”
