Are you a small group or organisation in the South East Devon area?
Two local Rotary Clubs are offering you a proven way to raise money in a Rotary-sponsored community raffle.The Rotary Clubs of Otter Valley and Sid Valley have got together to organise and run a ‘super raffle’ specifically to help those smaller groups and organisations in their areas who find it difficult to support and sustain their own activities.
Over the last eleven years, local organisations have raised over £250,000
The idea is that groups or organisations ask us for as many raffle tickets as they need. All they have to do then is sell them.
At the end of the raffle, Rotary asks for 10% of money raised and the organisations keep the rest.
The raffle tickets sell for £1 each, so if an organisation asks for, say, 100 tickets and sells them all – it immediately raises £90 for itself.
It is a very simple method of helping community groups, who often have limited fundraising ability, to help themselves.The name (and logo if available) of the group or organisation is printed on your tickets, so they can be readily identified with your fundraising.Tickets are available for sale from 1st May until end-October, with the draw being held in November.
The Top prize is £1,000 cash and there will be other cash prizes as well.
If you are interested in taking part, or if you just want to talk it over, please contact us as soon as possible.
You will be sent further information, so that you can add the raffle to your fundraising plans.

The Rotary clubs have arranged – and are fully responsible for – organising the draw, sponsorship, legalities, printing and distribution of tickets and final presentations.
