Not sure where to post this - so thanks for all advice.
Have doen a talk search also.
Want to help the local Dance school out with their fundraising.
The woman who runs the school takes everything upon herself and it's always a bit of a 'mess'

I have seen these ' tom bola' packs on baker ross for e.g...
Rather than her stressing over donations that usually ends up like a stall of jumble items, I thought this might be the way to go - any recommendations?
Thought I'd seen some ' Hello Kitty' or Spongebob' themed stuff before but doesn't seem to be on the BR site.

Any other ideas of ' attractive' prizes, that, essentially, means no hassle collecting donations and leaves nothing left to store?

All help appreciated.

Bottles. Of anything. Shampoo to Champagne. Ask for donations

Baker Ross or yellow moon are your friends.
Pick a theme. Buy lots of cheap small prizes a few middling size and just one or two big ones. Sell tickets at a sensible price.

Chocolate tombola works well. Ditto bottle tombola ( fruit shoots up to bottles if posh juice or wine if its for adults. )

Personally I love a good old fashioned random stuff tombola. I do one for the village fete. Flyer through doors asking for donations, call back a few days later to collect and sell grand summer draw tix .
