**Charity Raffle**

****The 2017 Linear Fisheries On-line Charity Raffle****

Top Prize is a Gold-Ticket allowing free fishing for one angler on any of the Linear Day Ticket Waters, for twelve months!
(There’s a massive list of prizes below and more may be added before the end of the raffle).

Over the years Linear Fisheries has raised money for many charities and this year is no exception. Through our annual Open Day being held on the 20th of May and our on-line fundraising, we aim to raise as much money as possible for both the Thames Valley Air Ambulance and Save the Children, with all funds received split equally between the two charities. For every £5 donation your name will be added to one raffle ticket, unless you specify that you do not want to enter the raffle. Please note that all donations made in association with our on-line raffle are not subject to Gift Aid. However if you just wish to donate, without being put forward to the raffle, you can then add Gift Aid where eligible - Please make this clear on your donation.

**If you are donating and wish to be entered into our on-line raffle then please ensure you leave your contact name and number as a note when you donate on the VirginMoneyGiving Page. If you do not wish to leave your number on the VirginMoneyGiving Page then you must leave your name and then email us with your name and phone number to chris.blunt2005@btconnect.com to be entered into the draw.
Without a contact number we won't be able to tell you if you win one of the many prizes**

All raffle prizes must be collected from our Oxfordshire site within one month of the raffle being drawn at the end of August 2017. We may be able to post some of the small prizes such as fishery vouchers and tickets, but all large prizes must be collected, this will allow more of the money raised to be donated to both the charities and not spent on postage.
