A plea for support from your Editor of The Rugby Blog: I am organising a big online rugby raffle to raise money for charity, and I’d be really grateful for the support of our readers.
The raffle is in aid of the Tag Rugby Trust, with whom I’ll be travelling to Uganda in the summer – it’s a great cause, and you can win some great stuff.
There are nearly 20 great prizes to be won, including signed memorabilia, rugby tickets, clothing and kit, generously donated by companies such as Puma, Gilbert, Kitbag and viagogo.
Organised through JustGiving, each raffle ticket costs just £2, and every penny of the funds raised will go to the charity, helping to improve the lives of under-privileged children all around the world.
There are so many prizes on offer that there will be three draws made, with the first taking place on April 1st – tickets will be valid for every draw after the date on which it was bought.
Every £2 donated will equate to one entry into the draws, and donors are invited to buy as many entries as they wish – the more they donate, the more chance they have of winning, and the more they will be helping the charity.
The plan is to make the Rugby Raffle an annual event, with the aim of growing the prize list and raising plenty of money for charity – please help to make the first year is a success, and then look out for another in 2011.
