The draw for the 2017-18 Lord’s Taverners National Raffle has been conducted and we would like to congratulate the following winners:
- First prize: Mr Peter Nevell (ticket purchased through the Sydney branch of the Lord’s Taverners)
- Second prize: Mr Antony Gorman (Hunter Region)
- Third prize: Ms Donna Lewis (Northern New South Wales)
- Fourth prize: Mr Gerard Garner (Geelong)
As winner of the first prize in the raffle – the 10th Lord’s Taverners National Raffle – Peter has won a 15-day European cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest in a twin balcony cabin courtesy of APT. The prize also includes two return economy-class airfares to Amsterdam (from Sydney) flying Etihad Airways.
Antony has won $10,000 worth of home whitegoods courtesy of Harvey Norman and Electrolux. Donna has won a Kookaburra cricket kit (bat, pads, gloves, kit bag), while Gerard is the recipient of a bat autographed by the Australian cricket team.
Since its inception in 2006, proceeds from ticket sales in the national raffle have totalled almost $1 million.
Any local sporting club or organisation which has sold tickets in our national raffles retains half of the cost of every ticket it sells.
Of the funds raised in this year’s national raffle, the Lord’s Taverners ACT will receive more than $7000, which will go towards supporting local cricketers and other athletes.
The Lord’s Taverners greatly appreciates the support of sponsors of our national raffle.
