Are you feeling generous ?!
As you will be aware one of the goals for the Guild, as we look to obtain Livery status, is to increase the funds available in the trust to enable us to finance projects that support the development of entrepreneurs and help to bring the opportunities of entrepreneurship to young people.
Appreciating that a number of fund raising activities have had to be curtailed so far this year, one avenue we are actively exploring is the ability to hold a Freeman Raffle with the opportunity to win a “not on the high street” event or prize.
We are therefore asking all our Freemen if they might have something suitable that they would be willing to donate. The type of prizes we are thinking of could be; priority tickets/box for sporting events or theatre, access to Chefs table, fine food or drink, a round of golf at an exclusive club, helicopter flight, or even a short stay at a holiday home.
Clearly this initiative can only be successful if we have sufficient support from all our Freeman, both those that are able to donate and those that are willing to participate in the raffle, and we do hope that you can support us if you are able.
With suitable prizes pledged, we are looking to launch the lottery during July at a ticket price of £50.
May we ask that in the first instance you email Mark O’Neil by the 13th July at the address below if you do have a suitable donation to make and once all responses are to hand, further details will follow.
Many thanks as always for your support
