WORKBENCH 2022 – How to buy extra Raffle tickets

Sponsored by Stephen Jones of Checkmate Digital, the Swindon Museum of Computing, Bitmap Soft and Retro Lemon. Prizes include an A1500 Plus Checkmate Amiga case, a fully boxed A500 Cartoon Classics pack and much more!

Funds raised will be split equally between SWAG and the Swindon Museum of Computing.

Your entry ticket

Each entry ticket purchased, (table, seat or BYOT) will include one entry into the raffle, but we need to raise as much as possible to cover the value of the donations at least, so this is your chance to purchase additional tickets before you arrive at Workbench 2022.

At the Previous Workbench

We managed to raise a fab £700 that we split between ourselves and the Museum which was an amazing acheivement with donations from many sources.

How we going to do this?

We are going to be selling the raffle tickets at Workbench 2022 and also on this website, we will then collect all the entries into a bucket and pick them out at Workbench at around 5pm.

How will I get my tickets?

When we receive your payment confirmation, we will write into a raffle book your ticket purchase, you will receive a confirmation email when we have done this to the Paypal registered email account, this email account will be cross checked against your main ticket purchase to verify that you are going. This will not be instant, but this will be done before we go to Workbench.

PayPal Fee’s

As you know Paypal take 2.9% and 30p from every transaction you make unless it is done in a different way, for this we decided to charge the buyer a fee to cover this.
