We want to give to the community of Hadlow. If the competition reaches its target number of 1,000,000 entries, Castle Competition will donate £50,000 towards the restoration of the original Hadlow Castle gates that front onto the High Street. This will hopefully cover all or most of the cost of restoring this wonderful Grade II Listed local landmark.
We also want to raise money for charity and, in particular, charities that have a special meaning for us. It was not easy choosing, so we let our 4 children decide and they chose charities that support deaf children, people suffering from mental health conditions, supporting ex-military personnel and terminally ill children..
Finally we thought that as the Tower is such a special building (it is Grade 1 Listed and thought to be the tallest Gothic folly in the world) we wanted to give as many people as possible the chance to own it, or at least spend some time in it if they win one of the castle holiday breaks.
We have had lots of comments from people saying if they ever won the Lottery they would buy it. We understand that the odds of the Lottery are over 45-million-to-one to win a jackpot of about £5m but in this competition, the chances of winning the Tower plus the £100,000 cash are never going to be more than one-million-to-one and could be far, far better depending on how many people get the question right!
Other competitions like this seem to have higher entry prices and we deliberately wanted everyone to feel they could take part, so we have set the price of a single entry to the competition to win the Tower (or the Caribbean villa) at £10. You can also buy a Triple Entry ticket for £15, which also includes 9 Entries to our weekly draws to win a holiday break in the Tower, or a Ten Entry ticket for £27.50 which includes 100 entries into the weekly draws. At just £2.75 per entry, this is the best value property prize competition we are aware of”
There is the very real chance that the Tower could be won at the end of this competition!!! Please help us to share details of Castle Competition to make this dream a reality.
