Willow Raffle Terms and Conditions

The Willow Raffle is open to all UK residents aged 16 or over.

No tickets can be sold to, on behalf of, or for a person under the age of 16 years. The Promoter reserves the right to carry out age verification checks.

If a ticket is unknowingly sold to, on behalf of, or for a person under the age of 16 they will be exempt from the raffle and forfeit their prize. The stake will be returned.

The purchase of one raffle ticket entitles the player to one chance in the draw. Tickets cost £1 each.

Tickets will only be entered into the draw when whole payment is received. More than one ticket may be purchased to a maximum of one hundred tickets (£100) per draw.

All purchased ticket stubs must be completed with name and contact information.

The draw closing date is 8 September 2024 – the draw date 13 September 2024. Entries received after the closing date will be treated as a donation.

The promoter accepts no responsibility for lost, damaged, illegible raffle tickets from which the prize winner cannot be identified, or for any technical failure or event which may cause the competition to be disrupted or corrupted.

Winning tickets will be selected at random and prizes awarded by chance and allocated in order of the tickets being drawn from first prize down to third prize.

Based on our 2023 raffle, the likelihood of a ticket winning any prize in the raffle was one in 1,144.

In 2023 as a percentage of the total sales and donations from the raffle, 44% of the total proceeds went directly to the charity, 11% was spent on prizes and 45% was spent on expenses. Total proceeds from all tickets sold were £9,162.

Winners will be notified by post, email or telephone as soon as possible after the draw date. Results will be published on our web site.

Prizes allocated as follows: 1st prize A three night break at Center Parcs for up to four people; 2nd prize £250 cash; 3rd prize £100 cash

First prize: A three-night break for up to 4 people in a 2-bedroom lodge, likely to be the New Style Woodland lodge. The break can be booked from September 20th onwards and must be booked and taken by the end of September 2025.

Where the promoter is unable to contact a prize winner and that prize remains unclaimed for three months following the promoter’s first attempt to notify the prize winner, the promoter may apply the prize as it sees fit, including re-offering the prize in future raffles.

All winners are required to co-operate with the promoter’s right to publish their win as and where deemed appropriate.

Therefore online or telephone payments for raffle tickets by credit card are not permitted and raffle entries using this method will be rejected. Please use debit card payments instead or enter the raffle via the post. For more information please visit gamblingcommission.gov.uk
