Bumper Town Raffle for Skate Park

UnknownWould you like to win tickets for Blenheim Palace, the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Chippy Theatre, a roller disco, Oxford Ice Rink?

How about meals for two, Champagne, Famous Grouse Whiskey, a host of luxury or useful gifts from local shops, or a £150 Sainsbury’s shopping voucher?

Well, you might be in with a chance. Tickets for around £1,000 worth of raffle prizes are on sale around Chipping Norton to raise funds for a new skateboarding park.

Mayor Mike Tysoe, with donations from many local town businesses and shops, has launched the raffle to help fund the ambitious new park which Chipping Norton Town Council hopes to see at Greystones.

Tickets, costing 25p each, are on sale at the Guildhall, West End Newsagents and from many of the town councillors. If you see one, ask and buy a few!

Tickets are on sale until the prize draw, which will be at the mayormaking ceremony at the town hall on 20 May.

The town ball, planned for April as a fundraiser for the skateboard park, had to be cancelled as the 80 tickets sold so far was not quite enough to cover costs.

This was a disappointment to the Mayor and organisers, but they want to keep up the skateboard campaign.

So if you were planning to come to the ball why not buy a bumper number of raffle tickets, donate or join in some way to help the cause?

Contact the Mayor at mtysoe50@me.com, or the Town Clerk at cntownclerk@btconnect.com.
