The Big PTA Raffle Christmas 2018


ast Christmas, the people behind PTA+ magazine teamed up with Charities Trust to launch The Big PTA Raffl e,

in association with StarVale, as a hassle-free way to run a fundraising raffl e. It allows PTAs and Friends Associations to offer their supporters the chance to win some amazing prizes, which last year included an Apple bundle, a West End break, and even a car. Everything is set up for you, so

there’s no need to apply for or buy your own licence (saving a £40 registration fee and a £20 annual fee), and no need to waste valuable time and resources contacting local companies to ask for prizes. The printing and drawing is all taken care of, too, so all you need to do is order and sell your tickets. You may still want to run your own raffl e, but

The BIG PTA Raffl e draw will take

place on 4 January. Winners will be contacted, and your PTA will then receive 75% of the amount you raised through ticket sales (25% covers the cost of administration, securing prizes and licensing).
