Raffle closes the 7th June! Last year we ran a successful online raffle to win tickets to WOMAD, the World Music and Dance Festival. This year we are fortunate to have again been donated two 4-day passes.

Taking place in Malmesbury, Wiltshire from 25th to 28th July, WOMAD Festival promises to deliver a global fiesta of music, food, art and dance. You can find them on Facebook. 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. This year’s UK experience includes Music, Workshops, Children, Art, Taste the World, Words, Physics, Wellbeing and Spa.

As last year, 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 by clicking here. Do buy as many as you can. The raffle closes at midnight on the 7th of June, and the draw is on the 8th of June, 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.
