The Big Rugby Raffle – helping you help small businesses in Rugby


Rugby News -

The lock down has produced many local heroes and a wealth of fabulous ideas to help those hardest hit. One of these ideas comes from local Rugby Mum and Theatre arts teacher, Ellie O’Toole.

“It is undoubtedly a very stressful and difficult time for the independent, small businesses that make up the heart and soul of our community and I just wanted to do something to help”

Ellie O’Toole

Inspired by a similar idea she saw on Instagram for a postcode in London, Ellie figured it could work in Rugby – and she was right. Designed specifically to help support Rugby’s small, independent businesses, the first Big Rugby Raffle was held on May 1st 2020 and was a massive success with 15 lucky winners claiming prizes from a large hanging basket from Solstice coffee shop and nurseries in Dunchurch to a £20 voucher for Hunt’s Bookshop in Rugby.

Currently held bi-weekly through the secure Raffall app, tickets cost just £1 and all proceeds go towards purchasing the raffle prizes from the businesses – so no one misses out. The independent business gets paid for its donation and you could win some amazing prizes for just £1.

The more tickets sold, the more businesses The Big Rugby Raffle can support. So far there are 18 prizes up for grabs in the next raffle so get your tickets now.

Head over to their Facebook page for more information and to see what great prizes you could be winning.

And we know you’ll be listening anyway, but just in case – tune into Dutch’s Afternoon Chat between 3 and 3.30 today to hear Ellie herself tell you all about it.
