THANK YOU FOR SAVING THE CAVES, OUR PEOPLE, OUR FRIENDS!
First of all we want to say a massive THANK YOU for all your help we've received to save the caves so far. You have enabled us to reopen. Our last campaign to win our beloved VW camper van was purely survival due to the pandemic.
Our fight is not over. This campaign is to enable us to raise enough funds to renew and restore specialist lighting in the caverns.
The caves are unique in many ways but definitely when it comes to lighting them. It’s damp, inaccessible in places so quite a challenge to illuminate it to its best advantage. We have turned to a specialist cave lighting firm in Germany who will help us along with our electricians to improve lighting in a much more sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
To renew the lighting would cost us a minimum of £200,000. That's why we are offering our lovely home as prize to one of our amazing supporters.
WIN A HOME ON THE BEST HIGH STREET IN PATELEY BRIDGE
Just imagine sometime in 2022, you could be escaping to the country as the winner of this partly-furnished Pateley Bridge apartment worth over £130,000.
A charming one bedroomed, ground floor apartment with an en-suite bathroom and a very good sized living/dining room. Stunning ornate ceiling. With seating area to the rear.
Live in. Rent out. Sell up. The choice is yours!
Located in a stunning village setting, on the high street just outside Harrogate in the heart of the Nidderdale countryside. This apartment is only 30 minutes from Harrogate and Ripon. Ten minutes from the fabulous Stump Cross Caverns.
We’re offering this stunning apartment to one guaranteed winner. There’s no mortgage, no stamp duty or conveyancing to pay.
What's the prize?
A stunning apartment on one of the most photographed high streets in the uk, Pateley Bridge, Nidderdale.
After careful consideration and successfully carrying out two recent smaller crowdfunding campaigns using this secure platform, we thought it would be a great idea to give somebody the chance of a lifetime and grab a new home rather than selling our property the traditional way.
Tickets are only £10 per entry. This includes entry to the prize draw and all entries receive a complimentary 3D virtual cave tour as a thank you for supporting us in our plea to save our ancient caves and illuminate them for future generations.
In order to increase the probability of reaching our target to enable us to relight our ancient show caves, we have taken the decision to extend the closing date to the 25/12/22 at 12 mid-day!
Once we have sold all 20,000 tickets then the draw will take place and find our lucky winner. This will be drawn at random by a third party. This will be shown live for everyone to see.
If by the 25/12/22 we haven’t reached our target of 20,000 tickets then the Crowdfunder will be deemed unsuccessful and all monies refunded to our valued supporters.
There will be no stretch target. Once the £200,000 is reached that’s it, we will close down the prize draw.
How will it work?
First and foremost, we would like to give all our wonderful supporters the option to support our project without entering the draw.
All entries are limited to residents of United Kingdom only. If you want to support the campaign and are not a resident of United Kingdom you can simply donate some money if you so wish without being entered. Head here to donate without entering the prize draw.
If you wish to enter our prize draw for every £10 entry ticket selected on this page and you will be entered into our prize draw once.
To clarify; a £10 entry ticket receives one entry, a £20 entry ticket receives two entries, a £50 entry ticket receives five entries. And so on. You can enter multiple times.
You can also enter the prize draw for free by post. See terms and conditions below.
1st prize will be the first entry drawn.
We will be doing a LIVE PRIZE DRAW as soon as 20,000 tickets are sold.
We will announce the lucky winner and will contact them shortly after. Entries must be made before the selling of the last ticket of 20,000 if you wish to be entered into the prize draw.
Thank you for supporting us through this difficult times and GOOD LUCK!!
We are a small family business and family is the heart of everything we do.
This is an ALL OR NOTHING campaign so if we don’t reach our target then Crowdfunder will refund all monies paid back to our wonderful Supporters and it will be deemed unsuccessful.
