First of all I would like to start off with a massive thank you to everyone who took part in my raffle and to everybody who generously donated alongside.
If you wasn't aware of what I had done for charity, I hosted a 5-day raffle fundraising for National Autistic Society. I'm hugely pleased with how smoothly the raffle went because I was hesitant at first and very nervous as to how It might go. This is the very first time I have done something like this for charity which I'm very proud of.
As it was Autism Awareness Week, I wanted to do something that I would enjoy and keep me entertained throughout the Easter Holidays. I felt that fundraising for Autism would be a fantastic way of doing something I would be proud of and to show my support.
I'll be honest, I haven't really done anything for charity so as it was my first time, I knew that helping a very worthy cause would be within my best interests considering I have autism too. I really enjoy knowing I've achieved and supported something which is very close to my heart. Helping out and supporting the community is very important to me because it shows you care.
Altogether I raised a fair and decent amount of £350! I am very happy with the end result considering I had set a small target of £200 so to have gone over my target was a complete bonus.
In the future, one of my goals is to do more for charity as it's very rewarding. So, you can certainly expect a new raffle next year.
I didn't manage to fill every raffle number although I suppose it's the donations raised that counts. I'm very thankful for everyone's support and encouragement. Congratulations to the winners too! I hope you're very pleased with your prizes.
It's safe to say I am hugely impressed with my result.
You've all been incredible which I cannot appreciate enough.
I hope you all enjoyed it and I look forward to next year's already!
