The UK National Raffle

17 Mar 2017

In March 2017 INTO Giving held a UK-wide raffle. It was a WHOPPING success, raising £5,000, before our chairman matched everything AND making it a cool £10,000 (US $13,000)!

UK INTO centres took part, with INTO Glasgow Caledonian leading the way in ticket sales and money raised! 

The raffle was open to anyone over the aged of 18, so friends and family can win too!

 

Prizes were top of the charts:

2 return flights to anywhere in Europe donated by British Airways
$1000 Marriot hotel voucher donated by FinancialForce
Hot air balloon ride donated by Cantarus

iPad donated by FinancialForce
iWatch donated by Endsleigh
£100 voucher for the Gingerman Restaurants donated by Grafton Banks

INTO centres across the UK  also donated  prizes, including: iPads, iWatches, football shirts, theatre tickets, dinner vouchers, Cheltneham racecourt tickets, Game of Thrones tour tickets, a one week stay in a holiday home in Cornwall, a signed cricket hat, £100 John Lewis voucher, a one year subscription to MUBI, Amazon vouchers, a kilt and sporran, beats headphones and more hotel stays!

All donations – every penny! – go towards funding our global family of education projects. For example:

• £1 – can provide classroom supplies for the DCI Sun Child programme in Bangladesh. This project supports the education of more than 600 girls
• £4 can provide all-day heating at the Jusoor School for Syrian children in Lebanon. This school is a lifeline for 320 children forced to flee their country's civil war.
