Criticism over 3m luxury home ‘raffle’

Image copyright Image caption Mark and Sharon Beresford launched the Win a Megahome competition in March 2018.

The owners of a PS3m home have been criticised by entrants in a so-called belonging raffle reap to acquire it.

Mark and Sharon Beresford offered their indulgence home in Ringwood, Hampshire, as the accolade but merely exchanged about PS750, 000 worth of the PS25 tickets.

Entrants claimed the substitute PS110, 000 cash prize was too low.

Mr Beresford told me that he “fully complied” with all laws and competition rules and that he had incurred “very high costs” running the promotion.

The Win a Megahome competition was launched in March 2018, with the 7,000 sq ft Huf Haus property as the prize.
