On Saturday 18th we started promoting our first online raffle to raise funds for Gateshead FC and Gateshead Foodbank. Up for grabs was a match-worn Jamie Chandler top from the 2011-12 season.
25% of all our raffle and sales on the Gateshead Soul shop are going to the Gateshead Foodbank. When Jamie Chandler heard this, he kindly donated to the Foodbank too.
Within twenty-four hours all of the fifty tickets for our raffle were bought! Incredible. At 18:00 on Sunday 19th, Tracie announced the winner via Facebook Live. The victor in our first raffle is Lee McCormack. Who will receive his shirt when it is safe for us to do so.
On Wednesday night the Weekly Gateshead Soul Online Football card goes live at £2.50 per team (40 teams). With the winner getting £40 and the Gateshead Foodbank £25. This will run each week throughout the year if there is enough interest. You will be able to take part by visiting our online shop after Wednesday at 18:00.
After the amazing response to this first raffle, we have decided that next Saturday there will be another raffle. Up for grabs will be a signed Phil Turnbull top. Keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels for when you can buy a ticket on our shop.
Thanks again for all your support and joining in, in our first online raffle.
