Meet the winners of our Summer Raffle 2020
Susan from Billingshurst won the jackpot of £1,000 and said, 'I was very surprised to be the lucky winner of the raffle prize.
As a long time (28 year) supporter of your work, I feel that that it is ever more important for us all to look after the special creatures that share our planet with us. Long may the work continue.'
Mrs Singleton from Liverpool won second prize of £250 and said, 'I was so pleased to win a prize in the summer draw.
It will be lovely to be able to treat my family and know by entering the draw I am helping WDC in their important work.'
John from Pinner won the second prize of £250 and said, 'Back in the ‘80s, my wife and I holidayed in New England, USA, and one afternoon, we went on a ‘whale watch’ cruise from Provincetown, Cape Cod. As we left the harbour and headed into the ocean, we were joined and accompanied by a flotilla of dolphins, all apparently excited by the human attention on board.
After about an hour or so at sea, we reached the area where the whales had been previously sighted. Before too long, a couple appeared and came on over seemingly to greet and welcome us to their territory. To see them float by, looking up at us, and pass under the boat, with such calmness and tranquility, and significantly with no fear, was one of those moments that you treasure for a lifetime, and we have.
It was therefore a no-brainer to support the WDC when we returned to the UK, and it was a privilege to sponsor dolphins Jigsaw and then Rainbow.
Thank you to WDC for the work you do. To win a prize is very thrilling, but to be fair, we don’t really enter charity raffles to benefit personally, and I’m sure that the winnings will make its way back to WDC in some form or another.'
Mark from Swansea won third prize of £100 and said, 'I’ve been playing the WDC raffle every year for over 20 years. It's never been about winning, rather showing support for a cause close to my heart. I’ve always found dolphins and whales stunning and inspirational animals, and such an important part of our oceans.'
Imran from Horton won £50 and said 'It was a lovely surprise to find I had won after sponsoring Bend the orca for nearly 3 years with the WDC!
My son Emin is so passionate about his favourite animal that he spends much of his spare time researching them and also learning about other marine life. He is only 5 and hopes to be working with sea animals when he is older.'
Ms Wilman from London and Ms Rae from Sheffield who both won £100
Mr Denker from Loughborough, Mrs Poole from St Leonards-on-Sea and Mr Martin from North Ferriby who all won £50
