Grab a chance to win cash prizes whilst raising money for the Animal Sanctuary

Do you want to do more to help the Animal Sanctuary?  Do you enjoy a ‘flutter’ now and again?  Well now you can do both by joining the Animal Sanctuary 50/50 Club.

How the 50/50 club works: 

It’s very simple; all you have to do is buy a monthly stake for £2 and you will be allocated your very own number.  You can buy as many stakes as you like at £2 each – the more numbers you have the greater your chances of winning!  You can pay either monthly by standing order, or annually with cash or a cheque.  Three winning numbers will be drawn every month, 50% will be used to care for the animals at the sanctuary and the other 50% of the income will be used for the prizes.  The first prize will be 30% of the income that month, the second 15% and the third 5%.  The more people who join the club the bigger the prizes will be – so spread the word to all your family and friends!

When are the draws?

Numbers will be drawn on the last Tuesday of every month, starting from Tuesday 26th June 2018.  If you’re a lucky winner, you will be sent a cheque with your winnings within 15 days.  We will post the winning numbers on our website and social media pages so you can check to see if you have won (no names or personal details will be given).

How can I join in the fun?

If you use online banking you can fill in this form online and then set up your standing order directly with your bank. Alternatively, you can download a form here and return it to Alexandra Brenninkmeijer, The Animal Sanctuary, Wilmslow, SK9 5LN. You need to be aged 16 or over to join and you can cancel your membership at any time (although we will not be able to refund you if you have paid up front for a whole year).
