Twinning with Palestine

The Britain - Palestine Twinning Network - "promoting twinning and friendship links"

Activities for the network in 2011 include * Women's visit - March * Twinning Conference in Palestine - April * Visits to Palestine April and October * Conference in Liverpool - November.

Fundraising

The Twinning network is growing. In 2011 the new committee decided to set up an activities fund to finance our activities and provide support to all our groups, big and small. At the moment, larger and better organised and financed groups, have been sharing their speakers and visitors.

Summer 2011 Raffle - We are holding a raffle to raise funds. Funds will be allocated to the network and the groups selling the tickets. We have two prizes, a week in a ski flat in the French Alps (summer) and a week in the Pyrenees, as well as many smaller prizes.

The books of tickets (five tickets at £1 each) are now available and can be ordered by contacting us with a request for the number of books required. Please note that the draw will be on 19th July 2011, and all books sold must be returned by then.

100 Club. If you have experience in running one for a local political party or community group, please contact us as we need good advice on setting one up.

For those of you who don't know, a 100 club works by people agreeing to pay in a certain amount of money each month (initial thought is £5) by standing order and then each month there is a prize draw, with a couple of cash prizes for the randomly chosen winners. The initial idea is that half of the money would go out in prizes, and the other half of the money would be used for twinning activities, either with this money going to the central activities fund, or perhaps half of the remainder going to local twinning groups whose members are participating (or something like this) and the other half of the money going to the activities fund of the twinning network. There are lots of variations of how exactly this might work, but we think it could be a really useful (and quite simple) source of fundraising.

If, for example, we had 30 people who took part monthly, then that would generate £150 each month, of which there could be £75 for cash prizes and £75 for twinning activities. Hopefully we could expand it to a much larger number of people over time, but even with a relatively small number like 30 people, it would provide a regular source of income for twinning activities.
