Nicola's Sweepstake Raises Funds

News just in! We have another simple fundraising idea for you today which scored well at Wakefield House this time around. Finance's Nicola Hewlett ran a 6 Nations Rugby Sweepstake during February and March in aid of the Alzheimer's Society. She reports:

A nice easy way to raise money, whilst enjoying the rugby! Entry was a £1, and all money went into the prize pot. The winner received half of the prize pot, and the charity the remaining half. Information Assistant, Alexander Harding who works in Magazine Sales was the lucky winner - guessing the winning team 13 times (out of 15 games).

45 staff took part, thus raising £22.50 :)

Is this something which could be adapted to work well in your area? There's plenty of events coming up over the next few months to choose from e.g. Eurovision and the Grand National for starters!
