Our raffles

Our raffles are just the ticket to help make a difference to people's lives every time you play

Raffles are one of our most cost-effective ways of raising funds - for every £1 we spend running a raffle, we raise over £6 - so it’s a fantastic way to support survivors of torture whilst having the chance to win up to £1,000!

Finding the envelope from Freedom from Torture saying I had won was absolutely wonderful. I passed some of my winnings back to Freedom from Torture, gave both of my children some, and the rest went towards a small greenhouse which has finally arrived and been put up – I have so many plans for the spring!
