The Challenge

Patron to put on exclusive event

Ardgowan Hospice’s patron Martin Compston has personal ties to the hospice, and has been on a mission since his patronage began ten years ago to raise as much as he can for them. He hoped to raise thousands through an exclusive ‘Line of Duty’ reunion with his fellow cast members. 

The Solution

Raffle to win tickets

Ardgowan Hospice’s patron Martin shared the event on his social media, attracting widespread support and interest in the event. Tickets could be purchased, or supporters could text DUTY to 70215 to enter a raffle to win two tickets to the event and donate £2 to the hospice. This Text Raffle alone raised nearly three and a half thousand pounds!

“It was our first time doing a Text Raffle and we were happy with how it went. The success was partly thanks to our patron Martin sharing on his social media, and partly to the exclusivity of the event."
