Palace for Life Foundation Santa Draw launches

The Santa Draw hopes to use the ticket sales to deliver three powerchairs to the Crystal Palace FC Powerchair Team.

This December, the Palace For Life Foundation Super Draw has been given a very festive overhaul – becoming for one month only, the Santa Draw.

As well as giving fans the chance to win the Santa Draw jackpot of £2,000, there will be a range of other Christmas prizes such as Palace stocking fillers and a signed shirt from the 18/19 team available to win at each home game.

Proceeds from the Santa Draw will go towards the Foundation’s Powerchair Campaign, supporting its goal of purchasing three more chairs for the Crystal Palace Powerchair Football Team.

Powerchair sessions have been running for four years and help members of our community who would otherwise not be able to play or compete in any sport. The impact of these sessions is huge in the players well-being and self-confidence.

Zahid Hanif, father of one of the Powerchair players, Nadal, said: “When we had Nadal’s diagnosis of cerebral palsy, we knew we wanted to get him involved with football, so when we learnt about powerchair football, it was incredible and we’ve been embraced from the beginning.

“Just because a child is in a wheelchair, it should not mean that they are not able to be involved in sport, and that is one of the things the Foundation is amazing at, they raise money and find areas where there is a need for support and allow people to participate.”

However there currently are not enough chairs for the amount of players wanting to take part and each chair costs £6,500. The Foundation’s goal is to purchase three more chairs so that more players can take part. Proceeds from the Draw over December will go directly to help fund this important cause.
