After a successful launch in 2017, The Big PTA Raffl e is now set to get even bigger and better...

The Big PTA Raffle!

The 2017 raffl e In 2017, we helped Charities Trust

to win amazing prizes, including an Apple technology bundle, a West End break and even a car! With no need for schools and PTAs to purchase their own lottery licence, source prizes or worry about ticket details, it was the perfect hassle-free way to raise money. More than 100 PTAs participated, raising over £50,000! Here is some of their feedback:  really captured the attention of our diverse catchment of parents – it  a box of chocolates.

‘There was a huge buzz around the exciting prizes that were on offer. The ordering of tickets was super easy, especially as there was no proof that needed checking.’ Meriden Church of England Primary School, Meriden, Coventry (210 pupils)

And we found the promotional posters really helpful.

A word from the winner!

‘I buy raffl e tickets every year at our school’s Christmas fair, but when I bought a book of tickets for The Big PTA Raffl e I didn’t expect to be so successful, especially with such great prizes on offer. I was delighted when I won – it was completely out of the blue. I can’t normally win an argument, let alone a car! It was a fantastic start to the year. I would absolutely encourage everyone to take part, whether it’s a school running the raffl e or people buying tickets. I never expected to win, and it has renewed my faith in buying a raffl e ticket!’ Ms C of Swansea, Pontarddulais Primary PTFA Visit ptaraffl to see the other lucky winners.
