Householder raffles London home for £2 a ticket to help support NHS

A homeowner has organized a raffle in an attempt to sell his semi-detached home – with several charities getting a share of the proceeds.

The global coronavirus pandemic has hit the housing market hard – a sentiment well known to Daniel Twenefour.

After going through some sales, he decided to try the alternative way to ‘sell’ his newly refurbished three bedroom London home, MirrorOnline reports.

His property, in the suburb of Mitcham, is the prize in the draw, with tickets priced at just £ 2 each.

His goal is to sell 200,000 tickets and raise £ 400,000 – even though the house was valued by brokers between £ 410,000 and £ 415,000 in 2019.

The buyer of the winning ticket will receive the house mortgage-free, and Daniel will also make donations to charities such as Jigsaw4u and NHS Charities Together to support the fight against the corona virus.

If the ticket sales target is not met, the owner of the ‘winning’ ticket will instead receive 90 percent of the raffle proceeds, with the promoters entitled to retain 10 percent of the entry fees to cover administration and marketing expenses to cover.

The lottery is now open to entries and will run throughout the month, closing May 31.

Daniel said, “It is no surprise that the corona virus has stalled the UK housing market.

“The concept is simple yet powerful. Each ticket sells for £ 2 which is then included in a draw.

“The competition is open for a limited time and once it is closed, the winning ticket is chosen by a random number generator, in the presence of a lawyer.”

Participants can purchase more than one ticket if desired.
