Niomi said, “I never thought I’d actually win. This morning I was shaking, my hands were shaking and I was thinking, this is not real, but I checked on RaffleHouse.com and started reading it all and…oh my goodness! It’s amazing.
“I live with my other half and we’re renting and it’s a lovely location but we don’t own it. I don’t have the words to describe this.
“This has just made lockdown worthwhile. I’m going to call my mum next and I have no idea what’s she’s going to say. Thank you so much!”
As well as awarding the property and the car, Raffle House is also covering legal fees and there’s no Stamp Duty to pay. What’s more, Raffle House has raised a further £11,000 for its two homelessness charities, Housing for Women and Centrepoint.
CEO of Raffle House, Benno Spencer, said, “This is a good news story at a time when we all need one. We are beyond thrilled to announce our jackpot prize winner and, having spoken with Niomi, I know that she is over the moon.
“We founded Raffle House with the aim of giving as many people as possible the chance to get on the property ladder for the first time through the purchase of low-cost tickets.
“Making one of our customers’ dreams come true is a really proud moment for us. Helping Niomi escape generation rent is incredible and being able to also hand over the keys to a new car at a time when she along with everyone else is feeling the pinch is an added bonus.
“Not only that, but we are pleased to have also been able to make sizeable donations to two incredible charities, supporting the critical work they do in the homeless community. Our total charitable giving now equals £25,000.
“We are already raising even more for them, and we look forward to announcing a second homeowner through our next competition in time for Christmas.”
The next property Raffle House is offering is a stunning £750,000 two-bed house in South East London. Tickets to the draw cost just £2 each and there’s also a free entry postal route available to all participants.
Tickets can be purchased from the Raffle House website, and more information on the free entry route can be found there too. The competition launched on August 1 and will close on November 30, 2020.
