A Raffle is Just the Ticket Follow our top tips to ensure you’re on to a winner. Prizes - The better your raffle prizes are, the more tickets you will sell and the more you are likely to fundraise. You may have to call in a few favours and go on the charm offensive. Approach local shops, travel agents, sports clubs, hotels, restaurants and your work, explain your fundraising idea and see if they are able to donate exciting prizes. Raffle tickets - When setting a price for your raffle tickets, think about who you will be selling them to and how much they would be willing to purchase a ticket for. Make it clear that you’re organising a charity raffle and that proceeds will help make birthing experiences better. Selling your tickets - It’s important to reach as many people as possible with your tickets. Sports groups, schools, the office, churches and supermarkets are all great places to sell your tickets and boost your fundraising. It’s important to get contact details for everyone who buys a ticket; you’ll need to let them know if they are a lucky winner.
