  • verify the validity of all entries, for instance by requesting proof of such from entrants

Prize fulfilment

The day of the draw will be Monday 4 March 2019 (“Draw Date”).  The winner will be announced on Facebook on the same date. In addition, the Prize winner will be contacted within 7 calendar days of the winner being judged via Facebook messenger.

If a winner decides not to accept the Prize, the Prize will be forfeited and the Promoter may award the Prize to another entrant.

A Prize cannot be transferred, exchanged or redeemed for cash. All other expenses associated with the Prize are the responsibility of the winner.

The Promoter will endeavour to deliver your Prize by standard post within two weeks after the Draw Date. The Promoter will have no liability for any delay in meeting this timeframe.

If the Promoter, having used reasonable efforts, is unable to contact the winner within 7 calendar days of the Draw Date, or a winner is disqualified in accordance with these terms and conditions, then their Prize is forfeited.

The Promoter’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
