How To Enter The Raffle

Upperthong Village Hall is excited to share with you our ‘Spring Open the Doors’ virtual raffle #shoplocal #villagehall #community #fundraising

We are hoping that this virtual raffle, marks the end of our lockdown fundraising, after what has been a rollercoaster year. With the Hall re-opening just 5 weeks away, Obviously according to government guidance, we’ve decided to hold another virtual raffle with some amazing prizes to be given away.

We are selling tickets via our fundraising platform,

Thanks to the generous support from numerous local businesses and individuals we have received some fabulous prizes. This means that there will be more than 10 prizes to give away. In fact, there are so many prize donations that we’ve had to pop the list of businesses here.

The winning numbers will be drawn and published on our website and social media on 5th June.

All we need now is for members of our lovely community to support our fundraising endeavours by purchasing raffle tickets to enter the prize draw. This will help us to try and complete all of the hall improvements that we hope to do this year. So far, we have been successful in raising funds for new windows and external doors, damp proofing, and we are working towards becoming a warm, carbon efficient community venue, and already have new LED lighting, loft insulation and are hoping to install more energy efficient appliances.
