To help a major supporter to reach a fundraising goal, CHUF set up a Text Raffle, with the winning prize of a luxury trip to Marbella.
Paige Jones aimed to raise £21,000 in 2021 in memory of her cousin, Nelle. To contribute towards her target, Paige organised a fundraising raffle to win a luxury holiday to Marbella. Having secured such an incredible prize, CHUF wanted to encourage as many supporters as possible to enter and donate.
Having searched for a simple solution, they settled on Text Raffles. Through Text Raffles, it is quick and easy to coordinate a raffle without the need to register with a local authority or the Gambling Commission. Furthermore, it is quick and easy for supporters to enter, encouraging donations.
In just a few minutes, CHUF was able to create the raffle. To draw attention to the fantastic prize, the keyword ‘MARBS’ was chosen, with supporters given the option to donate £5 when entering.
The competition was open for a couple of weeks in the lead up to a fundraising event, organised to celebrate the £21,000 target being reached. As entries can be accessed immediately through the Donr Dashboard, the competition closed during the event, with the winner announced live to the room moments later.
“Being able to use Text Raffles allowed us to help our supporter reach their fundraising target with absolute ease. It was so easy and such a simple way to make those extra funds which I dont think would have been achievable any other way.”
