Happy Friday! For this Friday Sessions blog we're going to let you in on a little secret...
A great way to help your corporate partners hit their fundraising targets is to get them to participate in something fun. What's more fun then a raffle where you have a chance of winning prizes?
Corporate Partner Staff Raffle
It's easier than you think to set up a staff raffle for your corporate partners. If you've read our Licensing blog then you know that you don't need a license to run a work raffle (awesome right?), there are some restrictions though so check out full requirements on the Gambling Commission site.
So all that legal stuff is out of the way, you can focus on what you can do for your corporate partners whilst raising vital funds for your charity. Running a work raffle is a great way to get people excited, who wouldn't get excited about free tickets or a free trip? Prizes can be as flamboyant as you want or you could simply raffle off extra holiday days or 'Duvet Days'... everyone needs a duvet day once in a while.
Treat your hard working team whilst raising funds for an important cause. Below are some fun prize ideas you could use at your next work raffle.
Days away - these are great for reminding your team how much you care. Send them away to a spa day for two, a boat trip down the Thames or even a day in London exploring all the new exhibitions. Get them to take photos of their trip away and this could be your next blog piece. Two birds with one stone. Sorted.
Get sweaty - keep your winner feeling healthy and active by raffling off free gym passes or how about a session of Yoga at The Shard? They get all bragging rights after that one.
Dinner date - a great prize could be as simple as a meal for two. Treat your winner to a romantic meal at 'London's most romantic restaurant' in time for Valentines Day. We all know how hard it is to book these for the 14th February!
Let them choose - take the pressure off yourself and get your team to decide what prize they could win. Get them to write down one thing they'd love to win and put it all in a box. Take one out, and hey presto there's your prize!
Get personal - how about offering the winner a days volunteering at your charity? It gives them a chance to step away from their daily desk and help make a difference in the world.
