When anyone connected to your organisation plays Spin to Win, they could win you anything from 10p – £50 every day. One in ten people are guaranteed to win a donation for their good cause every day throughout November so make sure your organisation is registered with easyfundraising so you can take part: www.easyfundraising.org.uk/community
We will have 1000 winners each day – so it is a great opportunity for community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, social enterprises to win much needed donations – plus it’s a bit of fun which is much needed after the year we have all had!
