Bridport Arts Centre’s Festival Raffle

As part of their ‘From Page To Screen’ festival, Bridport Arts Centre organised a raffle to raise funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee, with prizes donated by local businesses and supporters.

The Challenge

Ukraine in crisis

Each year, Bridport Arts Centre hosts their ‘From Page To Screen’ festival, which in 2022 took place from 27th April to 1st May. With Ukraine in crisis, Bridport Arts wanted to raise funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee's ‘Ukraine Humanitarian and Afghanistan Crisis Appeal’, and held a raffle that would end on the 30th April.

The Solution

Text Raffle at festival

Bridport Arts Centre hosted a raffle at their annual festival to raise these funds, with local businesses and supporters donating generous prizes, including two places at Mark Hix's special 'Kitchen Table Event', a prize worth £450! Supporters could text PAGE2SCREEN to 70215 to enter the raffle, with a ticket costing just £1.

“We were thrilled to discover that we could host a text raffle through Donr which we could set up and start marketing instantly. It encouraged users to make larger donations and although our campaign only ran for a short time, we were delighted with the amount we raised."
