Here's how you can win a £570,000 Scottish home with sauna and grand piano
A generous Scot is raffling his impressive home in order to raise money for charity.
Philip Leckie, who now lives in Singapore, set up Draw a House in order to raffle his five-bedroom Edwardian home while raising money for St.Andrew’s Hospice.
The well-maintained period property, located on Alexander Street in Airdrie, features a traditional bay window,s, original coal fireplaces, chandeliers, a grand hallway, conservatory, sauna, and grand piano (also included).
The property has been modernised to include central heating, double glazing and the kitchen features a granite worktop and island, an integrated oven and an American style fridge freezer.
How to enter the raffle
This is a unique opportunity for people to be able to enter a draw to win a house worth £570,000 at no cost at all. The first raffle ticket is free, with subsequent tickets costing £2.50 per ticket. Proceeds from ticket sales in excess of the value of the house earmarked for donation to St Andrew’s Hospice.
The top 20 ticket buyers will be awarded an expense-paid trip to London to the raffle winner reveal, which will take place on December 20 at the Cinnamon Club restaurant in London, founded by celebrity chef, Vivek Singh. At the event, one winner will be randomly selected to receive the deed to Mr Leckie’s Airdrie home.
Furthermore, Scottish artist and illustrator Adrian Mcmurchie has signed on to the project to offer the raffle winner a unique illustration of the house.
Speaking of the raffle, Mr Leckie said: “The home has been in my possession for over 15 years, but it’s come time for me to part with the property which I’ve loved and maintained throughout the years. Instead of merely selling it, I wanted to do something a bit different, where I could combine my passion for charitable giving with a unique way of allowing someone to win the house.
“St Andrew’s Hospice looked after my grandfather in his time of need, and I will never forget their kindness to him and my family. In this time of Covid-19, hospice care is sadly more important than ever, and I wish for the proceeds of this raffle to fund this wonderful organisation that does so much to care for those most vulnerable in our community. I am pleased to be able to give away my house to one lucky winner, whilst supporting a greater societal need.”
Those wishing to enter the raffle can do so by visiting the Draw a House website.
The original closing date for the competition was March 2020 but has been extended to 20 December 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
