The lovely people over at The Rugby Blog are organising a big online rugby raffle to raise money for charity.
The raffle is in aid of the Tag Rugby Trust which works with primary school children in developing countries to give them the chance to play rugby.
All this is done with the help of volunteers, and the Trust has previously worked in Uganda, Zambia and India.
There are up to 20 great prizes to be won, including signed memorabilia, rugby tickets, clothing and kit. These have all been generously donated by companies such as Puma, Gilbert, Kitbag and viagogo.
Organised through JustGiving, each raffle ticket costs just £2, and every penny of the funds raised will go to the charity, helping to improve the lives of under-privileged children all around the world.
There are so many prizes on offer that there will be three draws made, with the first taking place on April 1st – tickets will be valid for every draw after the date on which it was bought.
Every £2 donated will equate to one entry into the draws, and donors are invited to buy as many entries as they wish – the more they donate, the more chance they have of winning, and the more they will be helping the charity.
The Rugby Blog plans to make the Rugby Raffle an annual event, with the aim of growing the prize list and raising plenty of money for charity.
Please help to make the first year is a success, and then look out for another in 2011.
