Threshold Christmas Raffle (closed)

For people who are facing homelessness, Christmas can be one of the most isolating and difficult times of the year. You can help prevent homelessness this Christmas for as little as €3 by entering our Christmas Raffle. We have loads of amazing prizes and it’s so easy to enter.

We have partnered with some amazing shops, hotels, restaurants and venues who have generously donated some amazing prizes including vouchers for Dunnes Stores, Smyths Toys Superstores, Clayton hotels, Maldron Hotels, Cassidy Travel and hampers from Meaghers Pharmacy as well as some exclusive priceless collector items from celebrities like Brendan Gleeson, Sharon Horgan, Graham Norton,The 2 Johnnies, Zig and Zag and PJ Gallagher

To be in with a chance of winning some amazing gifts while supporting families and individuals at risk of homelessness, all you have to do is buy a €3 raffle ticket at www.idonate.ie/raffle/threshold .You can enter as many times as you’d like and tickets are available in a variety of bundle options:

1 for €3 / 5 for €12 / 10 for €25 / 25 for €60 

All proceeds made from the raffle will go directly towards Threshold services, helping those who are at risk of homelessness and supporting all renters in Ireland who are experiencing issues with their tenancy. The Threshold Christmas Raffle runs from December 1st to  Dec 22nd.  

Threshold staff worked with more than 12,000 households last year where the household was at risk of homelessness, an increase of over 12% on 2021. In 2022, just under 4,500 “at risk” cases – comprising nearly 10,000 people – were prevented from entering homeless services.

Agnes, 94, had been living in her house for eight years, but received a notice of termination on 8th December last year.It is only thanks to the kindness of supporters like you that we were able to support Agnes that day, with the emotional, informational and practical support she needed.

But there are plenty of older people like her, who simply don’t have the same safety and security in their rented homes. And when an eviction notice is served, with so many young families waiting for a home, it’s hard for older, single people to not feel overlooked and forgotten.


We urgently need your kindness today to ensure that we can continue to provide advice and a listening ear, for everyone who needs it this Christmas. Your gift will send hope to an older person like Agnes.

This year with your support, you can help a family at risk of homelessness by taking part in our raffle and buying a ticket to win one of our amazing prizes.
