The Raffle Draw
Entry to the Raffle Draw is by means of a raffle ticket specially commissioned by the Promoter. On purchase of a ticket for the Raffle Draw, all purchasers of tickets are automatically entered. Tickets must be retained as proof of purchase. At the point of purchase of the raffle ticket, purchasers will be asked to provide their first and last name, e-mail address, postal address and telephone number which will be written on the ticket. Failure to provide any of the foregoing information or accurate contact details at the point of purchase may result in inability on the part of the Promoter to contact the winner. The Promoter accepts no responsibility or liability to the winner for any failure on the part of the winner to provide full and accurate contact information.
Raffle Draw tickets are priced at €20.00. By purchasing a ticket, entrants agree to be bound by these terms and conditions (please retain a copy of these terms and conditions for your reference) and to take part in any publicity relating to the Raffle Draw, if invited to participate by the Promoter.
The Raffle Draw is open to all residents of the Republic of Ireland, aged 18 or over as at the date of the Raffle Draw who have purchased a National Breast Cancer Research Institute draw ticket except those who at any time during the period commencing 5th April 2023 up to (and including) 30th October 2023 are trustees or employees of the Promoter or any member of their households.
The winning tickets will be drawn by an independent judge appointed by the Promoter for that purpose. The independent judge will also draw 5 (five) additional tickets which will be recorded in the order in which they are drawn on a runners-up list. This will be witnessed by two different witnesses present during the draw.
If the writing on the ticket that is first drawn from the drum is illegible, the purchaser of the first ticket noted on the Runners-up List ticket will be awarded the Prize instead. If that ticket is also illegible, the purchaser of the second ticket noted on the Runners-up List will be awarded the Prize. This will be repeated as necessary. The foregoing will be witnessed by two different witnesses present during the draw.
The decision of the Promoter as to the winner and validity of the entry is final and no correspondence with third parties will be entered into.
How to claim
The Promoter will use reasonable endeavours to contact the winner within 10 working days of the Raffle Draw using the contact details supplied upon purchase of the raffle ticket, and the name of the winner will be posted on the website of the Promoter – www.breastcancerresearch.ie.
The Promoter will not enter into correspondence with third parties and will not use alternative contact details to those supplied upon purchase of the raffle ticket.
If a winner does not claim the Prize, does not respond within 5 weeks of their details being posted on the website of the Promoter, or is unable to provide a valid driving licence and proof of insurance on collection, such winner waives the right to claim the Prize and the Prize will be awarded to the purchaser of the ticket next drawn as noted on the Runners-up list.
Entrants agree and give consent that, if they win, the Promoter will have the right, without additional payment or permission, to use their name, town of residence and likeness for the purposes of announcing the winner of the Raffle Draw and for related promotional purposes.
