The Christmas raffle has now closed, thank you to everyone who took part! You can take part in our New Year raffle which opens on 2 January.
The Superdraw raffle
In addition to the weekly Pawdraw lottery, Battersea holds a raffle - called a ‘Superdraw’ each Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. All lottery players are entered into this as well as raffle players who have purchased tickets.
In 2020 out of each pound donated to the Superdraw, 66.44p went towards helping Battersea achieve its charitable objectives. We could not do this without you, so thank you.
All entries to the Superdraw raffle and the Pawdraw lottery are entered into a random electronic draw that is conducted 7 days after the closing date stated on each ticket.
Any entries received after the closing date are treated as donations, there are no refunds.
The draw is conducted by an independent party in front of two witnesses.
The first number drawn wins the first prize, the second wins the second prize, and so on until all 23 prizes are assigned a winner. There are no rollovers.
We contact the winners by phone and letter within 14 days of the draw date and provide the prizes to them within 7 days of receiving acknowledgement from the winners.
Four Superdraws are held each year and the chance of winning a prize per entry is 1 in 13,933.
We reserve the right to use winner’s names for promotional purposes, such as ‘Mrs Smith from London’.
The Superdraw prizes are: 1st prize - £10,000; 2nd prize - £1,000; 3rd prize - £500; and, 20 runners up prizes - £25 M&S gift cards.
For the Christmas Raffle, we will issue a free to enter bonus draw of £200. Players that have received a golden ticket in the postal letter and include the ticket within the reply envelope along with the completed entry form, will be entered into the golden ticket prize draw. Entry is limited to one Golden Ticket entry per raffle entrant.
In the bonus prize process, all entries are entered into the separate random draw, the first number drawn wins the £200. The bonus prize chance of winning per entry is estimated as 1 in 29,337.
The bonus prize is £200. Each Raffle entry costs £1.
