Win a West Sussex seaside house or Portugal holiday home for just £2.50 as deadline for charity raffle is extended
Ever dreamed of owning your own seaside home in West Sussex or a holiday home in the Algarve?
Those dreams could become a reality thanks to a charity raffle which is raising money for Brain Tumour Research and Surfers against Sewage. The deadline to buy tickets for the Winmybeachhome prize draw has been extended until June to raise more money for the two charities whose funding has suffered during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The owner of the West Sussex beach home and organiser of the raffle, Olympic snowboarder Jan Michaelis, said: “At the end of last year we had already donated £10,000 to Brain Tumour Research and Surfers Against Sewage. We hope this move will enable us to make another much needed donation soon and also increase the chance of the winner walking away with the main prize – rather than the current, smaller cash prize. We feel as though we owe it to our incredible charities and ticket holders to do as much as possible to make the raffle a success. We are incredibly close to being able to donate another lump sum to charity, so we want to do all we can to enable this to happen.”
Pete Lewis, director of fundraising for Surfers Against Sewage, said: “Fundraising in 2020 was difficult. We saw a 20 per cent reduction in our income, which is around £300,000. Now more than ever we need to continue protecting our marine environment. Every ticket you purchase will help us clean up our beaches, engage the next generation of children in caring for our environment and campaign to strengthen legislation and help raise awareness to our mission. We are incredibly grateful to Jan and Alina for their efforts in raising money and awareness for our charity and welcome the extension.
The winner of the prize draw will be able to choose between one of three prizes: the £475,000 West Wittering chalet bungalow with cabin; a £210,000 holiday home in Portugal with £150,000 cash prize, a £45,000 car, and up to £10,000 for a trip to Portugal for the transfer of deeds; or a lump sum of cash. Tickets are £2.50 and the draw will now close at 11.59pm on June 30, 2021. For full details visit winmybeachhome.co.uk
