Cropredy Conventioners Raffle 2011

Thankyou to everyone who bought tickets for the Conventioners Raffle in aid of Fair Mobility or had a go on the tombola or bought one of our Fairport vintage t-shirts – we ended up with the magnificent sum of £2446! In addition we were thrilled to receive an anonymous donation of £500 from an unknown Cropredy devotee – thankyou very much whoever you are! 

The raffle prizes of a ukulele, a guitar, a violin, photos, cd’s and posters, all signed by the artistes, were obtained throughout the year by our Cropredy Fundraiser Yvonne Bennett. Thanks Yvonne for all your hours of attending gigs and meeting with the artistes on behalf of Fair Mobility.

We are grateful to the Music Room for the brand new ukulele, which was signed by all the Fairport Convention band members and came complete with the words and music of ‘Ukelele Central’, also signed by Chris Leslie and Ric Sanders.  More information about the Music Room can be found on 

Guitarist Rod Willmott kindly gave us a violin complete with case and bow, which was then signed by Feast of Fiddles – a very fine prize indeed. Martin Bennett generously donated the guitar, which was signed by Fairport Convention and many of their guests including Ralph McTell, Martyn Joseph, Steve Gibbons, Gordon Giltrap, Chris While & Julie Mathews, Steve Knightley, John Etheridge, Clive Carroll, Ray Burley, Jim Causley and
Vo Fletcher.

Our grateful thanks once again go to Simon Nicol for making time on a very busy Cropredy Saturday to present the prizes and have photos taken as he chatted with the lucky winners.

The main winners were:
(Ukelele) 493 – Nancy Ford;  (Guitar) 149 – Les Kelly;  (Violin) 41 – Lindsey Tighe

Runners up numbers were:
735, 162, 831, 2023, 438, 954, 915, 223 and 1090 – and these winners took their pick from a wonderful selection of signed pictures, cd’s and posters.

Have a look at more photos below to see what you could have won, and make sure
you buy a ticket next year when we will all be doing it all again!

Thanks again,

The Fair Mobility Team
