The Trust launches
first online prize draw ! Win up to £100 cash prize (all donated) Draw 23.45 Jan 15th 2015 All proceeds to Restoration !
The Grand Draw is a well-established fundraising raffle
where tickets are sold to members of the public at local events and through our
network of IWA branches and our own members. Over £4,000 was raised this year.
The internet is another way to raise funds and to reach
people across the country and overseas who may not know about the Trust and the
canal restoration had it not been for them surfing the net.
We have been working with Golden Giving to be able to accept
membership subscriptions and donations online using credit / debit cards which
has enabled the Trust to recruit new members as well as the opportunity for
existing members to pay by card should they wish to.
Golden Giving have recently expanded their portfolio of
charity solutions by providing online raffles, so the Trust Council have
decided to try out the system with our very own New Year prize draw!
Each ticket costs £1 and the first prize is a cheque for
£100, donated by our very own webmaster Chris Sargeant. Second prize is a
cheque for £50, donated by our Grand Draw master himself, Michael Wright and
third prize is a cheque for £25, donated by our membership secretary, Katherine
Tickets are on sale now until January 15th. The
draw will be made on January 16th and the results will be posted on
the website and printed in the spring newsletter. Winners will be sent a cheque
in the post.
Please take a look and also encourage friends and family
members to take part, this raffle is open to all!
