Is there a restriction on the number of entries I make?
No, you can enter the prize competition as many times as you wish.
What is the deadline?
We initially aim to make the draw on the 30th April 2018. However, if enough tickets aren’t sold, we will extend the deadline to 25th July 2018.
What happens if enough tickets aren’t sold?
We will still hold a prize competition but the winner will get a cash prize, once all costs and 10% gross percentage has been paid to each of the charities.
Which charities will benefit?
Jeremiah’s Journey and Keep Me Close.
How will the prize competition draw take place?
All tickets are entered into an automated system on purchase. An official computerised ticket machine will select a random winning ticket. This will be videoed and shown live on the website. A solicitor will also be present to officiate the draw of the prize competition.
What Happens After I Enter?
After you have made your prize competition payment you will get a ‘Thank you for Entering’ page, you’ll also receive an email receipt, remember to check your junk folder if you haven’t received it.
I do not receive your card details, only your name, address, phone number, email address and answer with number of entries. Your receipt is proof of entry and not your competition ticket draw number. This is automatically stored by the ticketing company.
How will my entry be recognised?
Each ticket is registered with a number, a random number generator will choose a number and whoever’s name and address is on that line is the winner. If you purchase multiply tickets then your ticket number will be entered the amount of times you have entered the prize competition.
The database is automatically generated from the payment processor when an entry is purchased.

Durnford Street is so named after being acquired by Stephen Durnford in 1386
John Foulston, Plymouth’s most distinguished architect of the early 19th century, completed the initial development of Durnford Street with the building of St Paul’s Church in 1830.
In 1825 work began on the Royal William Yard. Durnford Street was used to accommodate Naval and Dockyard staff
Durnford was a select address for much of the 19th and into the 20th century and has become so again.
Durnford Street is now part of The Stonehouse Peninsula Conservation Area, designated in 1969 to fully reflect the architectural and historic interest and character.
About The House and Giveaway
This house with it’s open plan living space has been perfect for our growing family, big dog Nelson and our love of entertaining. We have enjoyed morning coffees watching the sun shine off the water of Stonehouse Pool and Mayflower Marina, we have explored every waterside footpath, rockpool, park and cafe that surrounds us. But now it is time to move on to be closer to family elsewhere.
Through this house prize competition, I hope to support two very important charities. The first is Jeremiah’s Journey. In 2012 my beautiful niece was killed, aged 21, in America. She lived her life to the full; campaigning for Obama, applying to the White House for an internship, was on the frisbee team and become known as ‘The Duchess’. The whole family’s loss is still immeasurable (her siblings were 9, 15 and 18 when she died). A charity like Jeremiah’s Journey would have made all the difference to them. Their support is life changing to families like ours.
The second is Keep Me Close; a campaign by the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Derriford Hospital to provide hospital accommodation to the parents of babies born with life threatening problems. I’d discussed with my niece before she died that we shouldn’t give up on trying to be parents. In 2014, just after my 45th birthday, we had our first daughter, but within a few hours they realised that she had a problem with her heart. The staff of Derriford Hospital were incredible. It was a very worrying time but the fault naturally corrected itself. After 3 months she was completely discharged. Our baby had arrived after 20 years of trying and losses. Our forever thanks will go to the nurses, midwives, consultants and doctors that gave our baby the best start in life.
