Our raffle is a fundraising activity and will raise much more money than we spend on prizes. We have carefully considered the prize amount to ensure that it is an attractive offer to our supporters, at the same time ensuring that we raise enough money from the initiative for this amount to be reasonable. All costs are carefully considered to ensure that we are always raising more than we give away, allowing us to reach more children and families who need our support. 

We operate in compliance with the rules set by the Gambling Commission (the UK regulatory body which governs raffles and lotteries).
