Expertly framed in a bespoke dome display with a quality black frame, two action pictures, and descriptive plaque with the money raised going to the NHS Charities Together fund.

All names of people donated will be placed into a bucket, and a winner will be chosen at random. We will do this by going live on Instagram to show total transparency.
