By purchasing tickets in this raffle you not only have the chance to win 1 of these 3 amazing prizes but you are supporting my fundraiser for Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Pancreatic cancer: the toughest cancer to diagnose, treat and survive.

1 in 4 people won't survive a month. 3 in 4 won't survive for a year.

Pancreatic Cancer UK fund research, provide support and campaign to take on this tough cancer together.

In July 2018 my step-father, John was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer which was devastating news to our whole family. We hoped through surgery the affected part of his pancreas could be removed, however the cancer had already spread and the surgery was not possible. He did undergo chemotherapy, however when this affected his quality of life too much he stopped this to enjoy his remaining days as much as he could. In April 2019 in the arms of my mother he left us all. A loving husband, father and grandfather taken from us all too soon. As a fit, healthy and strong man we expected him to be here for many more years to see his grandchildren grow and prosper.

To support Pancreatic Cancer UK I have taken the challenge to run the 2020 BMW Berlin Marathon in October in honour of my step father John Backhouse.

Funds raised through this raffle will be donated to my fundraising campaign which goes directly to Pancreatic Cancer UK. All travel costs associated with this challenge are personally funded. 

Join us online on Facebook LIVE Friday 12th June for the prize draw https://www.facebook.com/events/2696580653744860/

UPDATE 22nd April 2020. It was announced by the Berlin Senate on April 21, 2020, that all events with more than 5,000 persons will be prohibited until October 24, 2020. Unfortunately, this also applies to the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON, which cannot now take place on September 27, 2020, as planned. I will work with Pancreatic Cancer UK and Berlin Marathon to see if my charity runner entry can be transferred to 2021. In the meantime I will continue my training and somewhere, somehow I will complete my marathon challenge later in 2020. I will continue to fundraise for this special cause in hounour of my step father and of course nothing changes with this raffle and awesome prizes. Thank you for your support!

UPDATE 1st June 2020. Skydive OZ have adivsed they will not be operating in Canberra for the foreseeable future therefore the Skydive prize will need to be redeemed at Moruya.

UPDATE 9th June 2020. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to hold the prize draw at Eastlake Gungahlin as planned or other venue. The prize draw will be held on Facebook LIVE on My Gungahlin.

Skydive at 15,000ft with Skydive Oz (RRP: $448.00)

Embrace the fear, hop on the plane, soak up the sights with Skydive Oz

Skydive Oz at Moruya Heads offers tandem skydiving from Australia’s highest altitude of 15000ft over the ocean. They have a unique, fun and relaxed atmosphere to ensure you have the absolute most amazing experience possible.

I have been fortunate enough to skydive over Canberra four times now. What an experience!

UPDATE: This prize was originally promoted as a Skydive over Canberra. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 and current economic conditions, Skydive Oz are suspending their Canberra operations for the foreseeable future. To account for this we will increase the prize value from $448 to $500 so you can put the extra towards photos/video which I highly recommend.


Jet Flight Simulator Canberra B737 (RRP: $299.00)

At Jet Flight Simulator Canberra you will get to experience flying a Boeing 737-800 - 1 hour

On arrival you will be met by your First Officer. Each First Officer has completed our comprehensive instructor training. Our pilots have years of experience in the aviation industry and will guide you through the flight experience of a lifetime.

You will be taken through a pre-flight briefing in our meeting room. The pilot will show you a few of the basic checks and relevant features so you are ready for take-off. You then choose from over 22,000 airports from which to take-off and land, as well as the weather conditions of your flight.

Just before take-off you will be briefed on the primary controls, instruments and procedures necessary to be ready for take-off. After permission from Air Traffic Control you will accelerate the plane down the runway and take-off.

During your flight you will be fully immersed in your experience. You will be managing your airspeed, altitude and watching your heading whilst monitoring any other air traffic. The wide array of screens and indicators will also need to be monitored and you will have to complete all real life aircraft check-lists.

When the time comes to land you will approach your chosen destination and you will have to have maximum concentration to be able manoeuvre into position, to be able to correctly approach the runway and complete a safe landing.

My family purchased this experience for me for fathers day one year and it such an immersive simulator experience. It's amazing to experience flying over Sydney in this B737 simulator.
