On Monday 17 December at 12noon the Mayor of Gedling chose a ticket from over 3000 sold to win our draw for return flights to New York with Virgin Airways. The winner is: Judith Rennie, (Adult TOF) fom Marlborough in Wilshire. Congratulations!
A huge thank you to all those who bought tickets, or sold them on TOFS behalf. You’ve raised over £3k for TOFS. Wow - thank you!

A big thank you to all of you who took up the challenge of selling tickets on our behalf:
Dr Veronica Radford
We know what a task selling tickets can be so special thanks to you all. Top sellers were Brian Ayre, Redcar, and Shona Sneddon, Dundee. They were closely followed by Katie Burrell, Julie Logan, Christine Shepherd, Howard Sharman, Kay Leech, Andrew Cowling, Jo Oakley, Claire Stephens and Claire Stewart. Not forgetting those of you who bought directly from our webpage, and spreading the word, forwarding the link to friends and family. Finally, those of you who bought tickets at our Adult Conference.
Special thanks must go to trustee (and chief ticket folder!) Wendy Bell for getting the prize in the first instance and selling furiously thereafter!
So how do we follow this in 2013? Could you help us source the main prize? We managed to get this prize in the first instance because trustee Wendy Bell works for Virgin Atlantic and nominated TOFS as a charity in their monthly draw which is part of their community investment project. Does the company you work for run similar charity draws? If so, can you nominate TOFS to win? As well as the main prize this year we’d like to offer smaller prizes. Vouchers would be great as they’re easy to post.
Buy your cards here and TOFS will get 50%!
