Raffles in the UK are rarely exciting. Whether you're vying for tat at a village fete or shopping trolley's full of suspect gammon in your local pub, the prize is rarely worth the entry fee.
But this one's a no brainer. 37-year-old Dunstan Low has been trying in vain to sell a £845,000 six-bed country mansion for six years, and has now decided to raffle it off for £2.
He bought the Grade II listed Lancashire house –which features a cinema room, land and a garage fit for six cars - for £435,00 and spent £150,000 on renovations.
"We spent about 12 months renovating it as it had fallen into disrepair. We went through the whole house and took it back to how it looked originally," he told the Manchester Evening News.
But it has now been on the market for a long time, and Dunstan is looking to more innovative ways of making his money back.
"When I first told people I was going to raffle it everyone looked at me saying 'are you crazy, what are you doing?
More than 186,000 tickets have been sold, and Low promises that if they reach their goal of 500,000, they'll donate £25,000 to St John's hospice.
