Big Easter Raffle

Posted March 2020

Easter Raffle Banner

As a result of the Covid-19 epidemic the York Animal Home has been forced to close to the public. As a result the annual Easter Fair has been cancelled along with all of the activities that normally take place at it.

The Easter Fair raises about £4000 for the York Animal Home. A big part of this is the Raffle. We still desperately need that money and as we already had most of the prizes lined up, we thought we would take the raffle online.

Every £2 donated = 1 ticket.

Tickets will be sold through JustGiving. When you go to complete your donation you will be asked to give a contribution to JustGiving you can enter £0.00

The closing date of this raffle is 19 April 2020 and the draw will take place on 20 April 2020.

The Live Prize Draw will take place at 2pm Monday 20th April via Facebook Live on the RSPCA York, Harrogate & District Branch Facebook Page -

All winners will be contacted via email. A full list of the winners will be published on the Animal Home Website

Please make sure you provide your email address and allow permission for the charity to contact you.

Prizes will be held at the animal home until a time at which it is safe to collect them. Depending on the prizes won it may be possible to send these to the winners during the lockdown.

You must also be 18 years old or over to enter.

Entries are open to all residents of Great Britain and Northern Ireland except employees and volunteers of RSPCA York, Harrogate & District Branch with any connection with the production of the raffle, as well as relatives of such persons.
