Default E: 31/12 Win £90,000 cash + 91 r/u prizes (British Legion Raffle) (£1 entry fee)

British Legion

I hope that it is OK to post this (as it is for a worthy cause) and I hope that it doesn't break any rules

Every £1 entry you buy will help serving and ex-Service personnel and their families. Not just those who fought in the two World Wars, but also those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting today.

The draw will take place on 31st January 2012. Winning entries will be randomly drawn in the presence of 2 witnesses.

Prizes are as follows:
1st prize: £90,000 cash.
2nd prize: £20,000 or a Vauxhall Insignia.
3rd to 7th prizes: £1,000 cash.
There are 10 runner up prizes of £250 cash and 25 of £100 cash.
In addition, there are 50 fast entry prizes of £50 Marks & Spencer vouchers.

Best of Luck

Default Terms and Conditions

1) Participation in the Poppy Appeal Christmas 2011 Draw costs £1 per entry.

2) Profits from this raffle will be donated to The Royal British Legion Poppy Support. Registered Charity: The Royal British Legion, Charity Number 219279. Profits from our joint activity with Poppy Scotland will be shared between The Royal British Legion and Poppyscotland, Scottish Charity No. SC014096.

3) In order to promote responsible gambling, a maximum of 20 raffle entries may be bought per new person playing our raffles (44 tickets for previous players). Any requests to purchase entries above these limits may be considered at the discretion of the promoter. Please telephone 0800 954 0256 or email raffenquiries@britishlegion.org.uk and provide us with your telephone number so that we can contact you.

4) The Raffle is open to all mainland Great Britain residents over the age of 16 (this excludes Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands and BFPO addresses and is due to Gambling Commission legislation). It is illegal for tickets or raffle entries to be sold to, or by a person under 16 years of age. Any person found to be under 16 years of age automatically forfeits the right to any prize.

5) Raffle entries may be purchased online using a credit card. We regret that purchases may only be made using a credit card, debit cards are not accepted. This is because debit cards may be obtained by persons under the age of 16, and we experience great difficulty in verifying a cardholder’s age.

6) Raffle entries must be purchased online before midnight on 16th January 2012. The closing date for postal entries is 16th January 2012. Late entries will be transferred to the next Draw (Spring 2012) which opens in February 2012.

7) The draw will take place on 31st January 2012. Winning entries will be randomly drawn in the presence of 2 witnesses. Prizes are as follows: 1st prize: £90,000 cash. 2nd prize: £20,000 or a Vauxhall Insignia. 3rd to 7th prizes: £1,000 cash. There are 10 runner up prizes of £250 cash and 25 of £100 cash. In addition, there are 50 fast entry prizes of £50 Marks & Spencer vouchers.

8) The first 7 winners will be notified on 31st January 2012 by telephone if a phone number has been provided on the entry form. A letter of confirmation will also be posted that same day. Prize cheques are sent within 14 working days of the draw to the name and address of the registered owners of all the winning entries.

9) A list of the winner’s names, post towns and winning numbers will be posted on our website: www.britishlegion.org.uk/support-us/raffle and www.poppy.org.uk/support-us/raffle . To request a winner’s list by post, please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope to “Winners List”, Poppy Appeal Christmas 2011 Raffle, PO Box 975, Aylesford, Kent ME29 7XG.

10) The Poppy Appeal Christmas 2011 Draw is licensed by the Gambling Commission under the Gambling Act 2005. http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/. Contact: Russell Thompson OBE, The Royal British Legion, Haig House, 119 Borough High Street, London SE1 1AA. Registered Society The Royal British Legion. Registered Charity Number: 219279. If you have a complaint please call 0800 954 0256.
Profits from this raffle will be spent on our health & welfare programmes.

I would imagine that tickets will be available from your local British Legion

you can order a book of raffle tickets to sell on to friends and family, by emailing the raffle team on Raffenquiries@britishlegion.org.uk

or maybe ask the raffle team where you can purchase the tickets?

you can phone them on 0800 954 0256

Best of Luck
