Here we've answered some common questions about the raffle. If your question isn't answered here you can also contact us.

The Enormous Elephant Raffle is a one-off draw that takes place on Friday 3 May. Each ticket you buy gives you the chance of winning one of 30 fantastic cash prizes. Each ticket costs just £1.

Why are you running a raffle?

A raffle is a fun and engaging way for us to raise essential funds to help animals around the world.

How much will you receive?

We receive all profit from donations and ticket purchases, which is considerably more than is put forward for the prizes. This is an extremely cost effective way for us to raise funds for animals.

Is this a legal raffle?

Yes, our raffles are run in compliance with all Gambling Commission (the UK regulatory body concerned with lotteries) requirements and we adhere to the legal requirements of the Gambling Act 2005. World Animal Protection licence number: 4984.

Our prizes are as follows:

First prize: £4,500 cash or Elephant Trek
Second prize: £1,000 cash
Third prize: £500 cash
Fourth prize: £250 cash
Fifth Prize: £100 or Afternoon Tea
25 Runners up:  £50 cash
