Mitchell Carling, a 16-year-old from Dundee, had secured a ticket to witness Scotland’s opening game against Germany at Munich’s Allianz Arena this summer. However, he chose instead to organize a raffle to benefit the charities JDRF and Caudwell Children, aiming to raise a significant amount.

In 2022, Mitchell raised over £46,000 for charity by raffling off his two tickets to the Europa League Final between Rangers and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Opting not to join the Tartan Army in Germany, he plans to watch the game at home in Scotland with his family, hoping his sacrifice will generate substantial charity funds once more.

Mitchell shared his thoughts: “After the success of the Europa League Final ticket raffle, where I hadn’t anticipated raising almost £50,000, I felt inspired to organize another raffle when I got tickets for the Euro 2024 opener. I saw another opportunity to help out.

“I chose JDRF and Caudwell Children because of their personal significance—JDRF helped my sister after her Type-1 Diabetes diagnosis, and we’ve witnessed the positive impact of Caudwell Children’s work.

“The raffle winner will enjoy an amazing experience in Germany, while I’ll be supporting the team from home, hoping to make a difference by raising funds for these worthy causes.”

The raffle is hosted on the Crowdfunder platform, with proceeds to be evenly distributed between the two charities.

JDRF focuses on Type-1 Diabetes research, and Caudwell Children supports disabled and autistic children in the UK.

Participants can donate £20 for one raffle entry, with multiple entries permitted. The raffle closes at noon on Thursday, June 6, and tickets are available for purchase online.
