Entering the Raffle

The cost of each entry into the Raffle is £1. Players can purchase up to a maximum of fifty tickets. (See point 22 below). Once a raffle ticket has been purchased it is not possible to cancel the entry into the Raffle nor is it possible to refund the cost of the ticket(s). By entering the Christmas Raffle 2017, entrants agree to provide a photo and a quote about their win, and to the Promoter using this photo and their title, surname and home county in relation to being a winner of the Raffle, including on the Promoter’s website at www.barnardos.org.uk/win_with_barnardos, and on promotional materials relating to the Raffle and related activities.

8. To enter the Raffle, players must purchase one or more Raffle tickets. Each ticket is unique and has a serial number. This serial number is used to determine the winner.

9. All ticket stubs must be returned as instructed by the closing date in order to gain entry into the Raffle. The closing date and the Raffle draw date are clearly displayed on each Raffle ticket.

10. All players should retain the tickets themselves, as the information written on them is important and players may be asked to show the tickets as proof of entry if a query were to arise following the raffle draw taking place.

11. By entering into any of the Raffles every player is agreeing to abide by the above terms and conditions of the Raffle.

Prize Payments

12. All late entries received after the closing date will be voided and the monies received for these entries will be treated as a cash donation to Barnardo’s. Barnardo’s or the Woods Group will not be held responsible for any lost, late or incorrectly formatted entries.

13. All ticket stubs will be held securely until the date of the draw. Winning tickets will be determined by a random process in a secure environment and in the presence of an adjudicator. The order of determination of the winning tickets will determine the order of prizes allocated i.e. the first ticket drawn wins the first prize and so on. Please note that it is not possible to predict the chances of winning a prize as this is not a ‘fixed odds’ raffle.

14. Winners will be notified by post within 28 days of the draw.

15. By entering the Raffle, entrants also agree that if they win, their titles, surnames and Home Counties will be published on the website.
