Story

 

Get your raffle tickets here to win Perthshire Amber’s BIG KNIT BLANKET! (100% Alpaca)... all in aid of Guide Dogs, Scotland.

 My name is Rebecca Alexander and I am a fundraiser and puppy walker with Guide Dogs in Dunkeld, Scotland.  I am very excited to announce that Perthshire Amber - The Dougie MacLean Festival has chosen us as one of their charities for the coming year.  They are helping us raise money for this great cause and here’s how…

They have donated a stunning, hand knit blanket from "The Big Knit" (www.perthshireamber.com/index.php/charity/the-big-knit/the-story-so-far ) to be raffled off to raise funds to name a puppy for Guide Dogs.  Knitters worldwide have contributed 6 x 6 inch squares to make up the blanket. The colours are chosen to celebrate Perthshire in autumn. (The knitting projects coincide with the music festival that runs for 10 days in late October.  Visit the website at www.perthshireamber.com for details about the festival.)

For this special JustGiving page your donation to Guide Dogs enters you into a RAFFLE with the chance to win the blanket! 

How it works:  Every pound donated will be converted into raffle entries.   For example, a £10 donation will buy you 10 raffle ticket entries. Simply chose an amount to donate and please tick the box that allows us to see your email address.  This is very important because it’s the only way we can contact you if you're the lucky winner!  (Other fine print… You also cannot claim “gift aid” as this is a raffle.  You must UNTICK the box that states that you are not receiving a ticket.)

 The raffle will run until the end of the Perthshire Amber Festival - Sunday, 3 November 2013.  The winner will be announced at the Farewell Bash at Edradour Distillery in Pitlochry, Scotland.  You do not have to be present to win and we will ship anywhere in the world!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. 

So please dig deep and donate now.
