    Well done everybody. An incredible total raised so far. I don't envy James ripping and folding all the raffle tickets, as well as everything else he is going through.

    Brave man .......very brave man.

    Done! @Calv I think we donated at the same time. ;-)
    @Legoboy:  I sent to the charity directly as advised.
    You've got this, James, and you're truly not walking alone - you've got all of us with you.
    Best of luck!

    So what's the rules for the ticket drawing?

    If it's by 1st raffle ticket winner gets to pick first prize, then 2nd picks next prize, so on so forth. This will take an eternity to wait for each previous winner to choose and claim it, before the next person can go.

    Or will they be simply pulled in order of prize? 1st raffle ticket winner gets Team DFB, 2nd winner gets Winter Soldier, etc.

    "The winner will be announced at BST 8pm Saturday 6th August after which time we will begin to draw the remainder of the tickets randomly and live, first by prize number picked randomly from one hat, followed by the winning ticket number (or member name) from a second hat.  Should a winner be matched with its own prize, the prize will be returned to the pot and another drawn at random for the already chosen winner."

    Gift Aid isn't included in the total above.  It's in addition.  It's also only applicable to donations.  :)

    Also it's the foreign exchange conversions that's causing odd numbers, but you're more than welcome to continue to straighten it out throughout the day @stlux.  ;)
