A Coachmakers Prize Draw for the Last Night of the Proms
The Last Night of the Proms at the Albert Hall takes place on Saturday the 9th of September - and you, with four friends, could be there seated in the comfort of your own Private Box to enjoy first-hand the atmosphere and splendour of this iconic event.
This unique opportunity has been made available by the generosity of the Renter Warden, Mr Graham Cole CBE, and the recent notification that a family wedding will take place in North Wales on the 9th of September, which he is expected to attend. However, out of adversity (and disappointment) comes potential joy for someone else as the Renter Warden has agreed that his Private Box should be used as the first and only prize in a Prize Draw to raise funds for the Coachmakers’ Charitable Trust.
Liveryman Sir Kevin Leeson, the Chairman of the RAF Charitable Trust, has also offered a second prize in the form of two pairs of tickets for The RAF In Concert at the London Festival Hall on Monday 9th October 2017, in the presence of HRH the Duke of Kent. The seats will be in the VIP group and will include a pre-concert and interval VIP drinks reception. The RAF Charitable Trust encourages young people into aerospace careers and is part of the RAF 100 Appeal joint venture with the other RAF Charities - the RAF Association, the RAF Benevolent Fund and the RAF Museum. The Trust is grateful for the support the Livery gives to military aviation.
Tickets cost £25 each and the aim is to sell 1,000 tickets.
To win this prize, all you have to do is buy your tickets using this link in exactly the same way as you would book a Coachmaker event, except in this case there is no upper limit to the number of tickets you can buy. So don’t be shy, the cost of every ticket sold will be passed directly to the Coachmakers Charitable Trust - buy as many tickets as you like.
The Prize Draw will take place on Friday the 1st of September during the Election Court Dinner and the prize winner will be notified by e-mail the following day.
How will the ticketing process work?
Every time a ticket purchase is concluded, the Assistant Clerk will receive an e-mail informing her of the name of the Coachmaker who has made the purchase and how many tickets have been bought. This detail will then be entered into an Excel spreadsheet in the sequence in which the orders are received, such that the name of the purchaser will be entered against an allocated sequential number, one number per ticket purchased. For example, if Liveryman X is the first to buy 10 tickets, Liverymen X’s name will be entered against numbers 1 to 10 on the spreadsheet; if Liveryman Y then buys 5 tickets, his/her name will entered against 11 to 15 in the spreadsheet and so on.
When the winning ticket is drawn from the drum on the 1st of September, the number on the ticket will be compared to the spreadsheet and whoever’s name is matched to that number is the winner.
This draw is conducted under the provisions of the Gambling Act 2005 (Schedule 11 Parts 4 & 5).
