I have now received over 50 emails or messages of thanks from Associations or individual activists who have downloaded our Tonbridge & Malling Guide to Running a Successful Summer and Christmas Draw.
For the record, our own summer draw results for 2013 were as follows
- Tunbridge Wells - Sales 98.3% compared with 2012
- Tonbridge and Malling : Sales 102% compared with 2012
- Chatham and Aylesford: Sales 167% compares with 2012
- Rochester and Strood: Sales 232% compares with 2012
(i) Rochester and Strood are not part of the West Kent Group, but their Chairman asked if T&MCA would administer their 2013 Summer Draw to see if we could make a difference.
(ii) Above figs include raffle sales and donations sent in lieu
Across the four constituencies, three increased their income and one had a small reduction. Overall we increased summer draw income by 14%. Not a bad result given the political and economic climate and the general negativity in the media about our political fortunes.
