What is the Ride the Tide Raffle?

The Ride the Tide raffle is being launched to support the fundraising efforts of the Sarah Groves Foundation in conjunction with the next “Boaty McBikeFace” challenge for Graham Glass. Last year Graham ‘cycled’ from Guernsey to Herm. This year on the 13th July Graham will attempt to “cycle” from St Martin’s point in Guernsey to the West coast of Sark, starting at about 3.30pm; this attempt is very much weather dependent. He will again be racing a team of swimmers from The Guernsey Swim Adventurers, Jacqueline Hunt and Doric Steer. They have very kindly agreed to fully support the Foundation with their combined fundraising efforts for this event but have asked that a donation be given to The Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Where & when will the raffle take place?

The draw for the raffle is expected to take place at the Runway Sportive event being organised by The Tour De Sez, on the 14th July.

What prizes are on offer?

We have managed to secure a long list of excellent prizes.  A full list of the prizes can be seen here.


Where can I buy tickets for the raffle?

Raffle tickets can be obtained from the following sources.

For every donation of £5 via the JustGiving page, a ticket will be allocated to the donor. It is essential that the donation is not made anonymously. If the donation is anonymous, the donor cannot be allocated a ticket. We will allocate tickets from identifiable donations made on the JustGiving page during the week starting 9th July. Everyone donating via the JustGiving page will be contacted by email and advised of their number(s).  

Numbers will be allocated to all identifiable donors and emails will be sent with details of the numbers via email (sent from boaty@ptfp.co).  

  • At the Boaty McBikeFace Spinning event on 20th May, Seafront Sunday.

Graham will take Boaty down to the GSPCA seafront Sunday with two helpers. They will collect donations during the day and offer raffle tickets to anyone who has donated £5 or more (if they donate £10, they will be given two tickets etc).  

  • Via individual sales

Raffle tickets will be offered to the Tour De Sez 2018 registered riders and members of the Sarah Groves Foundation who will offer them for sale directly and from other volunteers who offer to sell tickets on Graham’s behalf.
