Why do you have such large cash prizes?
We feel these are competitive prizes, which enable us to draw in interest and increase our number of supporters. We run draws like these to spread awareness of the charity and they provide a fun and alternative way for supporters to get involved with our work.
Please be assured that we take care and attention to ensure funds are allocated appropriately. We also regularly review our prize structure to ensure it is affordable. This means that the vital fund raised are spent on providing rehabilitation and training as well as practical and emotional support to more than 6,000 beneficiaries that the charity currently supports.
