Three lucky winners took the prizes this year, with participants entering from all over the country.The second place winner, Mr Grandison from Lincolnshire stated, “I think it’s important to protect gorillas as I feel the more we damage the forest and gorilla habitat, the more it affects all of us”

She said: “Once again, our supporters have shown just how generous they are. The Great Gorilla Raffle has become a real fundraising favourite and all the money raised will be put to good use where it makes the most difference to the gorillas.”

The winners have been notified and will soon be receiving their prize money.
