Captain Manchester’s Mystery Prize

As always, it’s a mystery…



Here’s a reminder of what you have to do – and remember, unlike similar models, every penny raised will be helping Forever Manchester support the communities where we all work, live and love:

How Can I Enter?

  • You must be over 18 to enter
  • Read the Terms and Conditions
  • Have your card details ready (it is £5 to enter one ticket – but you can buy more than one to increase your chances!)
  • Click the ‘Enter the Magical Tombola’ button and fill out the form
  • Wait patiently with everything crossed for the draw on Friday 8th September 2017

It’s that simple!

You will then receive a notification via email that your entry has been submitted. We will contact you to acknowledge receipt of your payment, and contact you again after the draw to let you know if you’ve been lucky or not.

Good luck!



If you wish to be automatically entered into future Tombola draws you can set up a monthly direct debit using the link below. You can choose to have up to six chances per month by selecting the relevant amount. For example, if you choose to have two chances per month, select “£10 (2 chances)” and each month we will enter two tickets into the draw for you.

When setting up the direct debit, you will be given a date of your first collection. If the date provided is after the next draw date, and you want to be entered into the next draw, you will have to buy a ‘one-off’ ticket for the next draw. For all future draws, you will be automatically entered into the draw.

If you wish to cancel your direct debit at any time, you can do so via your own bank, but please email us at accounts@forevermanchester.com to let us know.

Once you have set up your direct debit, you will receive a confirmation email for you to check and confirm your details. We will be automatically notified of your direct debit payment.

If you encounter any problems, or have any questions regarding the direct debit payment, please email us at tombola@forevermanchester.com.
