    Online Raffle ideas 6th Nov 19 at 11:36 AM
    Hello, I'm wanting to hold a raffle for a small prize with money going to a local charity. I've just tried to set this up through my justgiving page but the charity isnt listed so it doesnt give me the option to hold a raffle.


    So I basically want donations for tickets, then I select a random winner, they get the prize and the money goes to the local charity.


    Any ideas how I can do this online.

    You may need a licence from the local council to hold this type of raffle. I assume that it won't necessarily sell all of the tickets on the same day as the actual draw.

    You definitely will need to take advice from your council. , its still gambling even if its a small raffle
    make the most of it, we are only here for the weekend.
    and we will never, ever return.
