Home About Us News Rotary Club Dunedin South Christmas Trailer Raffle Kicks off
Tickets are on sale NOW for the annual Christmas Trailer Raffle, run by the Rotary Club of Dunedin South and supported by Mitre 10 Mega Dunedin.

This year’s trailer raffle, which raises money for Otago Community Hospice, has prizes worth more than $18,000 and is a firm community favourite. 

Prizes, supplied and supported by Mitre 10 Mega, include: 

1st prize: a 7x4 tipping hauler trailer which comes with $10,900 worth of gardening and    household product vouchers
2nd prize: four piece outdoor lounge setting
3 rd prize: BBQ smoker pro22
4th prize: petrol mower m&c Masport 

This is the fourth year that Mitre 10 Mega Dunedin and their supplier community have come on board as major sponsors of the trailer raffle, however this year, in a new twist, the winner of the trailer gets to choose their prizes utilising vouchers. 

Trailer raffle tickets will be sold by an army of masked and socially distanced rotary and other volunteers and can be found in Dunedin’s main supermarkets, the Golden Centre and Mitre 10 Mega on key dates through to 19th of December. 

The draw will happen on the 21st December. Moray McKenzie, President of Rotary Club of Dunedin South, says despite the complications of the year gone by, the team were happy to be back in the community selling tickets for this “cracker” of a raffle. “The Christmas Trailer Raffle has an incredible line up of prizes thanks to the generous support of Mitre 10 Mega Dunedin. 

It is always a wonderful feeling, fundraising for the crucial services that Otago Community Hospice offer. Neil Finn-House Group CEO Mitre 10 Mega Dunedin says his team is thrilled to once again come to the trailer raffle party, and in doing so assist a vital service in the community. 

The raffle is a significant fundraiser for Hospice and this year organisers are expecting to raise well over $20,000 for the local service. The money raised will go directly into patient care via Community Care teams, which work throughout Dunedin City and the Otago region.
