2nd Prize of £250

3rd Prize of £100

We used the following website to generate the names of the winners –

They say: “Our random name picker first assigns incremental integer IDs to each name you enter, then uses a robust random number generator to produce a number in the range from minimum to maximum. The RNG algorithm is cryptographically safe, results in an unbiased pick, and can be used instead of a coin, dice, or another more primitive randomizing device (which might actually be biased due to imperfect construction).”

“The random selector has been tested statistically through simulations so you can be assured it is doing its job of giving each name an equal chance of being picked on any particular draw from the virtual urn / bag of names.”

The winners will be contacted directly regarding how to claim their prize.
