There are no alternatives to this prize. Failure of the winner to produce a valid shotgun certificate on request will make the win null and void. In the event the winners entry is void the draw will be re-run and a new winner drawn
  • We operate a combined online/offline draw ensuring that each entrant has an equal chance of winning each prize.

The results of the draw are final

  • Of the £71,950 received in ticket sales in the Gun Draw 2020, just 11% went on expenses, 16% on prizes and a fantastic 73% came back to Countryside Alliance to fund our work
  • Entries must be received by 12 April 2021
