Grand National Sweepstake

One of the most famous Horse Races of the year is here again, and what better way to get involved than by raising money for your favourite charity by holding a sweepstake in the office or with friends and family!?

To make it as simple as possible we have create a helpful guide to running your sweepstake – and even included a helpful toolkit!

How to run your Sweepstake

1. Download and print the Grand National Sweepstake toolkit. You don’t have to use our toolkit – there are plenty available online or in the newspaper!

Get your pack

2. Cut the first sheet up so that you have each horse on a separate token. Fold each one up and then throw them in a bag, hat or any kind of container you can find!

3. Set your entry fee – Remember to take into account what % you will donate to charity and what % you will put into the jackpot!

For example, if you decide to donate 50% to charity, and set the entry fee at £2 per horse. That would be £80 – £40 for your jackpot and £40 to donate to charity!

4. Grab your friends, or work colleagues and ask them to pick a horse at random out of the pot! (no peeking!) in return for the entry fee. As they draw out their horse, write down their name and contact next to the horse they drew out!

5. Switch on the Grand National 2019 5:15pm on Saturday the 5th April and take note of the winner!

6. Check your sheet to see who won! Next time you see them hand over the jackpot – and don’t forget to pay in your charity donation!

Remember to check the guidelines around running a charity sweepstake – and most importantly have fun!
