Nightingale House Lottery Terms and Conditions
All profits from the Nightingale House Lottery goes directly to help our patients live their lives to the full: pain controlled and symptoms managed, with access to a wide range of services and facilities. It is also about enabling them to spend time with their family and friends, living as normal a life for as long as they can, creating smiles and memories and making the most of the time they have in the way they wish.
Nightingale House reserves the right to amend or modify these terms and conditions. Any amendments are subject to days’ notice and will be available via our website. There are separate terms and conditions in relation to any other draw and will be available upon the sale of tickets.
Membership, Draw and Prize Fund
New members will be sent a unique randomly selected number. This will be your personal membership number and will remain yours for the duration of the membership.
The regular payment facility is by Direct Debit. Your written authority is required to set up a regular payment using your bank details.
Any person wishing to have more than 5 numbers may only do so with prior consent of Nightingale House Promotions.
We reserve the right to refuse an application for a membership in the lottery without giving a reason. Any such rejection may be reconsidered on submission of a written appeal to the Lottery Manager within 7 days. The decision of the Lottery Manager will be final.
All subscriptions are payable in advance at a cost of £1 per number per week. The draw will normally take place on a Friday morning. Monthly subscriptions paid via standing order or direct debit of £4.34 include 34p to accumulate and fund a 13th week, which occurs every three months. Any members that have not subscribed the full entry fee for that week are NOT entered in the draw, however their membership is NOT automatically cancelled.
Membership cancellation can be carried out at any time. If you pay by a regular standing order then you must notify your bank to cancel your standing order. Where members cancel in credit, funds will be held by Nightingale Promotions Ltd and will be utilised to fund entry into future draws (for the member, their executors or their personal representatives) until the balance falls below £1.00. Any balance below £1.00 will become the property of Nightingale House Promotions Ltd.
Please note that Nightingale House Lottery office employees are not eligible to participate in the Lottery.
Prize winners are notified by post within 1 week of the draw taking place. This will include the relevant cheque. Weekly winning numbers are published within Nightingale House, on Facebook and on our website www.nightingalehouse.co.uk. Should any cheque remain uncashed after 6 months then it will be cancelled and the funds used for the benefit of Nightingale House Hospice. Every effort will be made to contact you within the 6 months.
