Rugby Football League Provides Fundraising Opportunity with Raffle

Seldom is there a better way to empower your community to raise funds for a great cause than organising a community raffle for clubs and schools to participate in, and that’s just what the Rugby Football League (RFL) of England and Wales has done this season. The 6th annual Community Game Raffle now has tickets for sale, and the raffle is boasting a rather fabulous grand prize up for grabs.

One of the best things about this community raffle is that the local clubs and schools who participate in it will end up earning 70 pounds from every 1 pound ticket they sell. The other 30 pounds that doesn’t go to the clubs or schools will go to the Rugby League Cares charity.

Not only do schools and clubs earn money for every ticket they sell, individual sellers will also be eligible to win prizes for selling the most tickets.

How to Get Involved

To get involved in the 2013 Community Game Raffle, all you need to do is fill out a Ticket Request Form and send it to the email address provided on the page. You need not worry about printing any of your own tickets or promotional materials, because the RFL conveniently takes care of all that on their own.

The RFL provides those interested in participating in the raffle with their own tickets and posters, free of charge. Schools and clubs are instructed to sell tickets at 1 pound each, and the deadline for returning sold ticket stubs is 5 November 2013.

The stubs of any tickets sold will then go into the draw, which will be held on 26 November 2013.

Top Raffle Tips

One of the most challenging aspects of running a raffle is selling tickets. The RFL provides some excellent tips on how to sell more raffle tickets, with the consensus being that the key to selling more tickets requires:

  • Organisation
  • Incentives
  • Preparation
  • Word of Mouth
  • Customer Service

But running a raffle isn’t ALL about just selling tickets. Often, there’s a lot of effort that goes into planning a raffle, effort that must be put in long before the ticket selling takes place.
