Terms and Conditions

The organiser is The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge.

All profits from the lotteries will be used to support the general charitable work of the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge Trust Fund, registered charity number 513898.

Participation in the lotteries can be made by purchase of a ticket either from a member of the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge or from ticket sales outlets in Hebden Bridge or online through the club’s website at, where entries will be notified by email of their ticket numbers/names.

Duck Race ticket numbers/names will be entered into the race only when the whole payment is received.

The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge accepts no responsibility for tickets which are lost, damaged, and illegible or from which the prize-winner cannot be identified, or for any technical failure or event which may cause the competition to be disrupted or corrupted.

Any ticket entries received after the closing date may miss entry into the lotteries and therefore will be considered as a donation to the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge Trust Fund.

Winning ticket numbers/names will be the numbers/names corresponding to the first numbered/named ducks crossing the finishing line of the Duck Races held on Easter Monday in Hebden Bridge, as retrieved by event volunteers working at the finish line. If it is impractical to run the races, because of river conditions or any other reason, a member of the public will be asked to select, at random and in a public place, winning numbered/named ducks from all the ducks that were to participate in the races. Winning numbers/names will be announced after the race and displayed on the club’s website:

To request a list of winners and numbers/names by post please send a stamped addressed envelope to: Neil Croft, 2 Castle Hall, Cragg Vale, Hebden Bridge, HX7 5SN
