Christmas Competition!



The winners for our Christmas fundraising raffle have been drawn! We’ve sent all winners an email, so please check your messages and reply asap
Once again, thank you so much to everyone who supported the Library and bought tickets. Over the last month raffle ticket sales have raised just over £200, which has helped us buy some really fantastic carriers!


It’s less than 3 weeks away and we’re in a celebratory mood so here’s a chance for you to win a gorgeous baby carrier for Christmas!


To raise money to support the South London Sling Library, we’re going to raffle off one (or two…or three) gorgeous pre-loved carriers* plus some brand new babywearing accessories. 

Initially there will be one main prize, but once we’ve sold 250 tickets we’ll add another prize, and there may be more if we sell even more tickets!

Tickets cost £1 each, and you can either buy them directly from us on a Sling Library open day or at a Sling Meet, or by sending a donation to the Sling Library via cheque or bank transfer. Please email for more payment details.

We’ll allocate a real raffle ticket to each £1 donated, and hold a proper raffle draw from a Christmas Stocking on Monday 12th December (in time to get prizes posted out to winners in time for Christmas!). Winners will be announced on the SLS Library website and Facebook page, and if you’re a lucky winner we’ll contact you via email address to let you know.

All proceeds from the raffle will go to the South London Sling Library to help keep it stocked with great carriers and to help pay for running costs.

The Main Prize

We’ll start off with a first prize of a beautiful Didymos size 6 (4.8m) woven wrap. This is the Limited Edition linen-blend Caribe Fish design – a gorgeous blue wrap that’d suit a girl/boy/mum/dad, and that’s both soft for small babies and supportive for toddlers. Suitable for a wide range of front, back and hip carries from birth to toddler. It’s worth about £120 new, and comes in it’s original packaging with instructions. What a fantastic prize!

Runner-up Prizes

There’ll also be 3 runner-up prizes of brand new** babywearing accessories – a choice of a pair of rainbow striped babylegs leg warmers, a pair of aluminium sling rings for using with your woven wrap (your choice of size and colour), or super soft Fumbee strap protectors that can be used on buckle carriers or Mei tais (or pushchairs or carseats) for those with babies who like to suck and chew their carriers.


Extra Prizes

If we sell 250 raffle tickets, then we’ll add an extra prize of a beautiful and super soft size 2 Didymos Woven Wrap (further details and pictures to be added when we get there!), and if we sell 500 tickets then we’ll have a rootle around and see if there’s any other carriers we could add as a special suprise…..we may even find something buckley!
