This is the Veterans Raffle
Published on 11 July 2018
During attendance at various Armed Forces events, Veterans Raffle volunteers experienced members of the public mistakenly thinking that they are already supporting the Veterans Raffle, but they were actually entrants of the Veterans Lottery!
This confusion appears to be linked solely to both organisations using the Union Flag in their logo design. Veterans Raffle intend to revise their logo design and instigate a re-branding soon. A spokesperson from the Veterans Raffle stated that they would be concerned if members of the public were to accidentally commit their support to the wrong raffle/lottery however, they will continue to highlight their significant benefits over the competition in the hope that even if someone were to accidentally subscribe to the wrong raffle/lottery, that they’d soon discover their error and switch accordingly.
Veterans Raffle do not wish to discourage support of any charity supporting our Armed Forces Veterans however none of the existing charities promoting a lottery reward the support of the public and charities to the extent of the Veterans Raffle and we are very aware that this isn’t something that is made clear to the public by any other lottery organisation other than the Veterans Raffle.
Veterans Raffle apportions 95% towards Prizes & Charity, whereas a veterans’ lottery promoter will typically only apportion around 45% to 65% which, in our opinion isn’t really an acceptable combined percentage. Some lotteries aren’t necessarily profiting from their charitable activities but due to their lotteries being promoted by 3rd parties and due to their marketing and advertising expenditure being so high they aren’t operating as efficiently or effectively as they otherwise could, and the end result is that they don’t have much left over for their prize fund, that is unless they cut back on the percentage apportioned to supporting charity, which is a general practice of the Health Lottery and the National Lottery (Lotto). In our opinion 20% -25% apportioned to charity is a totally unacceptable percentage and something that should be addressed by the gambling licence authorities.
People already registered with the Veterans Raffle are enjoying prizes from £100 up to £25,000, which of course others aren’t offering unless you happen to win their rollover. They certainly don't offer the public anything even close to the fantastic jackpot winning odds of the Veterans Raffle.
Whether making a single donation or entering the Veterans Raffle, on behalf of all the specialist veterans’ charities we support, we would like to say a huge “Thank You.”
