Poppy Appeal Charity Raffle 2018

Recommended Posts

In 2017 Silver Forum members raised £500 for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal by having a Charity Raffle. This year it is back and I hope we can blow that £500 out the water! 

Here is more about the British Legion and what they do.



And their 2018 launch video. 


Last year the final mintage numbers of the 1 oz & 100g Silver forum bars (and many more member donated prizes) were up for grabs.

So, this year I am going to donate the full cost of the serial number #200 (1 oz Forum Bars), #150 (100g Forum Bars) and #50 (3 oz Rounds) to get us started. 

In addition to those three prizes we also have #1 of 25 of the 250g Silver Forum Bars, which has been sponsored by a forum member - who I have not asked if they want to be named, but if that person reads this feel free to give yourself a very well deserved shoutout and pat on the back!

Feel free to donate a prize to the pot too - donating a prize does not get you an entry though - you will still need to buy a ticket! But the more prizes there are the more chance there is of winning and the more appealing it gets for people to chip in £5 to win some awesome prizes. 

Please note that if you donate a prize then you will be required to send it to the winner of that prize and be responsibly for all postage costs (this might include sending items internationally). 


Entries are £5 per ticket with no limit on the number of entries per person. 

Please send your entries via PayPal F&F to info@backyardbullion.com

or via Banks Transfer to:

Account No: 76626253

Sort Code: 51-70-06


Closing date will be Saturday 10th November @ 12pm UK time. The draw will happen shortly after and I will upload a video of the results on Sunday 11th November at 1pm

The draw will be made using https://www.random.org/ 

Maximum of 1 prize per person, if your number and name are drawn more than once you win the first prize only and we re-draw subsequent duplication's.

For prizes donated by forum members I will tag you both in the announcement and you can link up to arrange delivery of the prizes. 

Otherwise I will send out the prizes in the week commencing 12th November with the exception of the 3 oz round which will have to wait until wk commencing 10th December (as they are not yet made!)

So, dig deep guys, donate prizes, let's make this HUGE!!!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask them here or via PM.
