Great Gorilla Raffle winners announced
27 September 2012

The Gorilla Organization has drawn its annual Great Gorilla Raffle, with three supporters winning cash prizes.

The raffle was drawn just days after the annual Great Gorilla Run, with both events vital in helping raise both funds for the Gorilla Organization's award-winning conservation and development projects and also awareness of the ongoing plight of Africa's wild gorillas.

"Thanks so much to all of you that participated in the Great Gorilla Raffle," said Gorilla Organization Fundraising Officer Kym Dhudwar (pictured right, with Communications Officer Luis Dominguez).

"This year's raffle raised over £15,000  - what an incredible achievement! The raffle is not only great fun, but the proceeds go towards our conservation projects in Africa saving gorillas from extinction".

The first prize is £1,000, with a second prize of £500 and a third prize of £100. The winning raffle numbers are:

  • 1st prize: Mrs P M Glasper from Ledbury. Ticket number 003292
  • 2nd prize: Mrs J A Hale from Torquay. Ticket number 098171
  • 3rd prize: Ms J Combes from Chichester. Ticket number 035369
