Enter our Raffle for the chance to have Afternoon Tea at The Ritz with Dame Joanna Lumley or win a luxury Fortnum & Mason Hamper with GWT goodies!

1st Prize - Win Tea for Two with Dame Joanna Lumley at The Ritz in London.

As a daughter of the Brigade – her father was in the 6th Gurkha Rifles – the Gurkhas have always held a special place in Joanna’s heart.

Becoming a Vice Patron in 2009, Dame Joanna has been a huge supporter of our work, visiting several of our projects in Nepal along the way. On a visit in 2012 she opened Kalika Lower Secondary School, which we built in Tiplyang located in the Myagdi district of Nepal.

2nd Prize – Luxury Fortnum & Mason Hamper with exclusive GWT goodies.

Since 2017, Fortnum & Mason has been home to extraordinary hampers full of delicious food and one lucky winner will receive their very own handwoven wicker gift hamper with a variety of tasty treats and the bonus of some exclusive GWT goodies!

How it feels to win!

“I can only say that if you think you won’t enter as you never win, give it a go. No one was more surprised than me and it was a superb day.”

In 2022, Clifford couldn’t believe he’d won the GWT raffle. “I never win anything, so I had to read the email twice then get my daughter Hayley to double check,” he said.

“After meeting Joanna, her personality and experience showed through, and she immediately give us a big hug and settled us down,” said Clifford. “She had a genuine interest in our background and life. Fortunately, Joanna was quick to put us at ease and got stuck in with us…the time flew by…we enjoyed a very relaxed conversation on both our family lives and history.”
