Car draw results

A big thank you to everyone who bought tickets in the car draw for the Friends of Barnet Hospital / Hospital Radio Barnet. The draw has now been made, and the winner was unfortunately not one of our tickets. This is the text of the press release about the results.

Yesterday, at the fourth FSI Forum, a year of planning and hard work culminated in the draw of the Great Big small Charity Car Draw. Gary Newlyn from Zurich Insurance, sponsor of the Car Draw, drew the winner from the 34,780 tickets sold.

 

The winner was Jill Graham who bought her ticket to support Daisy Chain, an autism charity based in the North East, and is now the proud owner of a funky MINI First!

 

The results of the 2010 Car Draw were fantastic with charities raising almost twice the average result of 2009! Here are some of the highlights:

·         211 charities took part in 2010 Great Big small Charity Car Draw;

·         34,780 tickets were sold at £2 each meaning £69,560 was raised for small charities;

·         16.28% of the sales were online and 83.72% were offline/ paper ticket sales;

·         The average amount of funds raised from the car draw per charity was £329.67. This is a huge increase on last year’s £180 average;

·         The top selling charity this year was Daisy Chain who raised nearly £6000. 

Other outstanding charities included Peterborough Soup Kitchen which raised over £3,000, African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust and The Animal House Rescue each of which raised over £2,000, and 11 other charities which raised over £1,000.

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Great Big small Charity Car Draw; this is one of our most fun and successful events and we hope that everyone who took part this year, as a seller or a buyer, will support this initiative next year.
