We are always looking for ways to raise money to support our students, and this year we have been lucky enough to have been donated a pair of tickets to the world famous WOMAD Festival.

Taking place in Malmesbury, Wiltshire from 26th to 29th July, WOMAD Festival promises to deliver a global fiesta of music, food, art and dance. Over the weekend you will discover music from all around the world, many of which you won’t see anywhere else in the UK – click here to see the full line-up for this year. Established in 1982 by Peter Gabriel, the festival has since taken place over 250 times in 27 countries around the world. It’s truly a global phenomenon on our doorstep.

We have teamed up with Zaffo, licenced by the Gambling Commission as an External Lottery Manager. To be in with a chance of winning a pair of adult weekend (4-day) tickets to this year’s festival, worth £450, simply enter our raffle online  for £2 per ticket. Do buy as  many as you can. The raffle closes at midnight on the 14th April, and the draw is on the 16th, when the winner will be notified by email. So don’t delay!

We wish you the best of luck and thank you in advance for your support. Your raffle ticket raises valuable money for the education of disadvantaged young people from Sikkim in NE India, changing their life prospects.


The Children of Sikkim exists to support the education of disadvantaged children from Sikkim, in the Himalaya, NE India.

We are a UK registered charity which helps such children to be educated in Sikkim and elsewhere in India, from primary school through to college or university.

We give a young person continuity of support so as to allow them to achieve their potential.
