National Seniors members can sign up for AutoPlay, which allows you guaranteed entry into every Play For Purpose Raffle. Not only will you never miss out on the chance to win fantastic prizes, you’ll also support National Seniors Australia through every raffle. Sign up here.
Do you have your eyes set on a sporty new set of wheels? Or maybe you could do with a big wad of cash to spend on whatever your heart desires.
Why not have both? The prize that awaits the lucky winner of Draw 21 in the Play For Purpose raffle comprises an elegant $118,000 Audi Q5 Sportsback S Line vehicle plus $131,000 in cashable gold bullion.
Winning that great $250,000 prize package – or one of nearly 400 additional prizes, ranging from $20 Woolworths vouchers for hundreds of runners-up right up to second prize, a $15,000 gift voucher from JB Hi-Fi – is just one good reason to buy tickets.
Another reason is that 50% of the cost of each ticket you buy through our website will help support the good work we do on your behalf at National Seniors Australia.
The other 50% goes towards the prizes and some of the costs of running the raffle, with other administrative costs met by The Lott.
And now it doesn’t matter which state you are in, because residents of South Australia and Western Australia are eligible to buy Play For Purpose tickets for the first time beginning with this draw.
If you are a winner, you’ll be following in the footsteps of Ronan and Maura, a couple from Manly, NSW, who the First Prize Pack in Raffle 19, drawn in June.
Their prize included a Volkswagen Crafter Kampervan and more than $100,000 in gold bullion.
As Ronan said, “I’ve supported National Seniors for quite a while now. I’ve always thought, ‘Why not? It’s the right thing to do!’.
“I’ve been purchasing tickets into the raffle since 2020. We’re retired and in that age bracket and we wanted to give back.
“National Seniors does a fantastic job helping older Australians tackle age-related issues.
“We appreciate what they do for us,” he said.
Ronan and Maura will be putting the Kampervan to good use, as they plan to join the grey nomads and make a trip to Western Australia. The gold will be invested as a nest egg for the future.
National Seniors’ share of ticket sales goes directly towards its advocacy work, meaning positive results for older Australians in a range of areas.
Our advocacy includes the Let Pensioners Work campaign, aimed at creating a fairer retirement income system.
We’ve just had a significant win in this campaign, with the federal government deciding to permanently increase the Work Bonus limit by $4,000.
Due to our advocacy, the Work Bonus was increased from $7,800 to $11,800 last year so older people could work more without losing 50 cents in the dollar from their pension. This was a temporary measure until the end of 2023, but this change will now be permanent from 1 January 2024.
National Seniors also advocates for better housing and aged care, energy affordability, reducing out-of-pocket health costs, and fairer concessions for older Australians.
