The last 18 months have been tough but we know all PTAs are determined to get their fundraising back on track. Parentkind is supporting PTAs to do this through the Big PTA Raffles. Following the huge success last year, the Big PTA Christmas Raffle is back; a great way to give support to your PTA and school in a fun and effective way.
We are holding 12 draws over 6 days, two draws per day, between 13th December and 18th December 2021. For £3 you will get a ticket entered in all 12 draws. Every draw will give you the chance to win up to £5,000! The best news – 50% of your ticket sales goes straight to your chosen PTA.
And there’s even more. Every ticket sold helps towards your PTA qualifying for entry into a special PTA draw with the chance to win up to £2,500 or one of five prizes of £500.
We hope you enjoy taking part in The Big PTA Christmas Raffle!
Last year The Big PTA Christmas Raffle helped to raise £120,000 for PTAs.

Each ticket costs £0.25 per draw. Via the site you can purchase a ticket for all 12 draws for £3. From the ticket price, 50% goes directly to your chosen PTA. 40% goes towards prizes and advancing Parentkind's charitable causes and 10% for the administration of the raffle.
Each of the 12 draws will have a guaranteed cash winner chosen at random from the entries. They will win up to £5,000* or, if we don’t sell our target of 50,000 tickets, 40% of the total proceeds.

Signing up is easy. We just need your name, email address, and postal address. We also need your date of birth to validate you are over 16.
The draw process is a raffle, whereby the winning ticket is chosen at random from all the eligible tickets for that draw. Each ticket is unique and has an equal chance of winning, including any additional tickets you may buy. The winning ticket will be selected at random using the online resource www.random.org who are independently verified for their random number generation using atmospheric noise. The winning number will be displayed on the website and we will email the winner to let them know.
The chances of winning vary according to the number of tickets sold. There is one prize of up to £5,000* in each draw.
Two draws will take place each day between the 13th December and the 18th December 2021.
All winners will be advised by email. The winning number will also be published on our website, Facebook and Twitter following each draw.
Your winnings will be paid directly into your nominated bank account or you can choose to donate your winnings back to the PTA you’re supporting.
Payment is via debit card only. The site is fully secure, PCI DSS compliant and we don’t store any card details.
