Raffle terms and conditions

- This raffle is open to residents of mainland Great Britain (this excludes Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and Channel Islands).
- Underage gambling is an offence. UK law states that it is an offence for raffle tickets to be sold to, by or on behalf of a person under 16 years of age. Amnesty International UK’s rules however state that players must be 18 or over to enter our raffle. Therefore, if a ticket is sold to, by, or bought on behalf of a person under the age of 18 they will be exempt from the raffle and will not be awarded any prize.
- Postal entries require the player ticks the box to confirm that they accept these terms & conditions. If the terms & conditions box on the entry form is NOT ticked, then the money sent will be processed as a donation to Amnesty International (UK Section) Charitable Trust and the tickets will NOT be entered into the draw.
- Employees of Amnesty International UK who work on the production of the raffle, and members of their households, are ineligible to enter this raffle. Any tickets bought in the name of such Amnesty International UK employees or members of their households will be rejected from the draw and considered as donations to Amnesty International (UK Section) Charitable Trust.
- Monies raised by this raffle will support the work of Amnesty International (UK Section) Charitable Trust, Registered Charity No 1051681.
- Payment for participation in the raffle can be made by cheque payable to ‘Amnesty International (UK Section) Charitable Trust’, debit card (excluding American Express/Electron/Solo) or postal order. We cannot accept payment by credit card for online entries. We discourage sending cash in the post as this is insecure. We cannot accept CAF payments for raffle tickets and all CAF payments will be treated as donations.
- Raffle tickets will be entered into the draw when the whole payment is received.
- Amnesty International UK accepts no responsibility for raffle tickets which are lost, damaged, illegible, or from which the prize-winner cannot be identified.
- Any ticket payments received after the draw will be considered as donations to Amnesty International (UK Section) Charitable Trust.
