Team Chelsea Gibraltar/Alcaidesa Fundraising Update!!

Here's an update from Chelsea's team in Gibraltar/Alcaidesa:

Team Chelsea Gibraltar/Alcaidesa arranged a raffle for three weeks in June, which ended in a very well-attended fundraiser at The Ivy bar in Alcaidesa.


In all, we raised £1,800 plus €340 from the raffle, quiz, change and donations!
Raffle tickets were sold by a number of people, most importantly:
Jennifer Thorvaldsson at Odobo
Donna Gibbs in Mijas Costa
Laura Kilminster at William Hill
A total of 1,056 tickets were sold! Some for £1 and some for €1, so the total is a bit hard to guess J

We also ran a Change for Chelsea campaign with jars for coins placed in various places and would like to thank the following especially:
Ramsons shop in Watergardens, Gibraltar
Donna Gibbs in Mijas Costa
The Ivy Bar in Alcaidesa
On 20 June, the fundraiser was carried out at the Ivy with a quiz. Each team member paid €5 to participate and all funds went to Chelsea. We collected more change and sold additional tickets before the final draw. A total of 18 prizes had been donated and we would like to extend our thanks to the following kind companies and individuals:
