Changes to the raffle this year
Thank you all for taking part in our Christmas raffle this year. It was a great effort by everyone with several shops selling more than 300 tickets.
There are planned to be some change to the raffle next year, rather than two raffles we are going to plan just one, at Christmas. This will allow us to better promote it and potentially offer larger prizes all of which should help you sell more tickets.
Instead of the spring raffle we are planning on testing counter boxes with Mind pin badges to give in exchange for cash donations. Initially there will be a box of 50 badges sent to each of you.
We are trying this for a few reasons but mainly it is cheaper to provide this than to run the spring raffle which has run at a loss for the past couple of years and we hope more donations can be taken as there is no time limit to give away all of them. We will split the income made from donations for the pin badges 50/50 with each shop.
If you have any concerns or queries please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
