- No tickets can be sold to, on behalf of, or for a person under the age of 18 years.
- The cost of each entry is £1. Players may purchase more than one entry, and payment must be in advance.

- The prizes for the Raffle are 1st Prize £7,000, 2nd Prize £2,000, 3rd Prize £1,000, 5 x Runners up £100. There are no alternatives to any prize.
- We operate a combined online/offline draw ensuring that each entrant has an equal chance of winning each prize. The draw will be conducted by utilising a Random Number Generator that has been tested and approved by an independent, Gambling Commission approved, third party test house in combination with a blind draw in plain sight of staff. The results of the draw are final.
- Based upon the number of entries in our raffles during 2021 the average chance of winning a prize for a single ticket is approximately 1 in 2,415
- Of the £266,659 received in ticket sales in 2022, just 30% went on expenses, 8% on prizes and a fantastic 62% came back to CAFOD to fund our vital work.
- Entries must be received by 5 May 2023.
- Late entries will be treated as donations.
- The draw will be held on 19 May 2023.
- Winners will be notified by post, email or telephone no later than two weeks after the draw date. Please keep your ticket number as proof of purchase.
- A list of winners will also be published on the website within 2 weeks of the draw date. These will only be in summary e.g. Mrs H, Manchester with ticket number 123456.
- Winners may be asked to take part in CAFOD PR and promotional activity.
- If a prize is unclaimed after reasonable efforts have been made by CAFOD to contact the winner, then CAFOD will be entitled to dispose of the prize as it thinks fit. The winner has one month after notification to claim the prize.
- The CAFOD policies for raffles can be found here. This includes our policy on responsible gambling, underage gambling, protection of customer funds and our complaints procedure.
- To enter the online raffle an entrant must self-certify that they are the required age to play. A confirmation email will be sent to the entrant confirming their numbers in the draw and thanking them for their participation. Random age verification checks are carried out at regular intervals. If an entrant is found to be under the required age their payment will be returned and they will not be entered into the draw.
- Entries must not be bought on behalf of somebody else.
- In order to promote responsible gambling, it is recommended that no more than 60 chances are to be purchased per person for the Raffle.
