The Big Give Charities Raffle 2013

The first ever Big Give Charities Raffle ran in 2013! You were able to buy tickets on behalf of any charity registered on the Big Give and be in with a chance of winning one of many fantastic cash prizes!

The Big Give Charities Raffle was a great way to support your favourite charity via the Big Give.  Your chosen charity received 96p for every £1 ticket bought .


The draw was made on Friday 9th August 2013 and there were lots of prizes up for grabs including:

  • 1st prize – £2,000 cash, or a luxury holiday for two
  • 2nd prize – £1,000 cash
  • 3rd prize – £500 cash
  • 10 x runners’ up prizes of £50

Furthermore, a £500 cash prize was awarded to the charity that has the most raffle tickets bought on its behalf and the grand prize winner won an additional £500 cash prize for their chosen charity.

How to buy tickets?

Tickets cost £1 each and a minimum of 10 tickets had to be bought in each transaction and in multiples of 5 beyond this.  In order to promote responsible gambling, each individual entrant is limited to buying no more than 100 tickets in total.

For each £5 book of 5 raffle tickets sold – £4.80 went straight to the charity of your choice with the remaining 20p covering administration costs.
