Thank you to everyone who donated both money and prizes to our Wheelchair for Ricky raffle. We raised a stonking £2142 which is around 2800 US$ and will be sent to the company that makes the wheelchairs once we receive it from Just Giving. Along with what Ricky has raised himself he is only a few hundred dollars short of his goal!

The draw has been done so please check to see if you have won one of our fantastic prizes.

If you have, then please forward me the confirmation of donation email that you received from Just Giving, along with the shipping details that you want the prize sent to and your contact details. If you made multiple donations then please send me the email for the correctly dated donation. Send this to linette@hifipig.com within 28 days (by October the 10th) to claim your prize which will be shipped directly to you from the donor.

If the prize you have won has plug options please specify what kind you require.
