Raffles can be held in branch as part of an event or as a stand-alone at certain times of the year, for example, Christmas and Easter. Prizes for raffles can be obtained from the selling floor in either Waitrose or JL (go to the JL stock transfer) at cost price. Funding for the prizes must come from revenue collected through ticket sales and must not be taken from the Social Budget (the purpose of this budget is to subsidise events and activities for Partners). Ticket prices should, therefore, be set according to the value of the prize, with the intention of covering all costs involved.
Should tickets for raffles be on sale prior to the day of the drawer, the standard printed tickets (obtained via house stationery) should be used. In the event that tickets are only sold on the day of the event, numbered cloakroom tickets will suffice.
Should you have any questions regarding raffles, you should contact your Regional Leisure Benefits Manager.
