Rules & Procedures

The Care Trust, securing sustained charitable giving, in an open and transparent manner, to empower children and adults, to live life to the full.

Draw Rules:

  1. The Care Trust operates Draws for the benefit of The Care Trust Beneficiaries: the
    Central Remedial Clinic, Rehab Group and special charitable projects and to provide opportunities for Contributors to win prizes.
  2. Contributors “purchase” a Draw ticket when The Care Trust has received, matched and
    cleared funds to the Contributor’s Care Trust Account.
  3. The Care Trust reserves the right to alter the format of the Draw, to adjust the amount
    required to purchase a Draw ticket and to alter the prize structure within the terms of the
    relevant lottery legislation.
  4. The Care Trust Board Directors, employees, Independent Fundraising Representatives and
    Contributor Agents are prohibited from participation in the Draw.
  5. Contributor Agents act on behalf of the Contributor, and are not employees of The Care
    Trust. The Care Trust does not accept any responsibility or liability to Contributors who deal with any defaulting Contributor Agents, or who suffer loss through the default, neglect or error of Contributor Agents.
  6. Prizewinners in the Draw may be requested to participate in a photo-shoot for on-going
    promotion of the Draw.
  7. The Care Trust reserves the right to change the day on which the Draw takes place. A
    schedule of Draw dates is available on and on request at the above address.
  8. It is not necessary to claim and all prizewinners will be notified by post. The
    Care Trust will take other appropriate and reasonable steps to contact prizewinners where postal contact has failed. Any prizes not claimed within 12 months of the relevant Draw will be deemed as forfeited.
  9. The prize-car is non-transferrable. No other models or cash alternative are permitted. Contributors may upgrade at their own expense. The Care Trust may, at its sole discretion, offer a cash alternative option to any prize winner.
  10. The top prize offered is the specified prize-car only. Tax, insurance, fuel, tolls, parking and traffic offences will be the responsibility of the registered owner.
  11. The prize-car must be registered in the prizewinner’s name before delivery of the prize-car can occur.
  12. The Care Trust decision in relation to the selection of the prizewinner is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
  13. In the event of any dispute regarding the Rules and/or Procedures, the conduct of the Draw or Draw results, the decision of The Care Trust will be final.
  14. Draw entrants must be at least 18 years old and resident in the Republic of Ireland in order to qualify as a prizewinner. The Care Trust reserves the right to request written proof of age of any prizewinner.
  15. Where a prizewinner is deceased, the prize will be transferred to the estate of the deceased Contributor.
  16. The prizewinner is the Contributor named in The Care Trust Contributor account and is not necessarily the payer of the contribution.
  17. The names and addresses of prizewinners will be printed in a monthly result sheet, which is distributed to Contributors, is available on The Care Trust website and may be advertised in the national and/or local press.
  18. The Care Trust or its Beneficiaries, shall not be liable for any loss, damage or consequential damage of any nature whether in contract, tort including negligence or otherwise caused by acceptance of these Rules and Procedures or in connection with the Draw.
  19. By entering The Care Trust Draws, all Contributors will be deemed as having accepted and being bound by these Rules and Procedures and having consented to their personal data being transferred to the Data Controller (The Care Trust) for the purposes of the administration and marketing of the Draws. All Rules and Procedures form part of the Draw entry.
  20. Prize-car winners are notified initially by phone and shortly afterwards a confirmation letter is issued. Winners are requested to furnish a copy of a recent utility bill to verify their name and address and upon receipt, The Care Trust will instruct our prize-car suppliers to contact the winner directly regarding delivery.

Draw Procedures:

  1. The Care Trust operates periodic prize Draws under licence granted by The District Court pursuant to the Gaming and Lotteries (Amendment) Act 2019.
  2. The Care Trust operates three Draws every month with a specified car as the top prize and a number of cash prizes in each Draw.
  3. Tickets are issued for each 1-cent of contribution and each ticket is allocated a unique Draw number by the Draw process. Winning tickets are randomly selected by computer.
  4. Monthly contributions are entered equally, in so far as practicable into all 3 monthly Draws, Draw 1, Draw 2 and Draw 3, using 1 cent Draw tickets. Where there is a residual of one Draw ticket, it will be entered into Draw 1 and where there is a residual of 2 Draw tickets, one Draw ticket will be entered into Draw 1 and the remaining Draw ticket will be entered into Draw 2 in that month.
  5. Contributors are eligible for and entered into Draws in the month that their funds are received, matched and cleared. Draw tickets are issued for Contributor receipts that have been matched and cleared for ticketing. At the end of the month, tickets for Draws 1, 2 and 3, are collated and the winners of each Draw are published.
  6. A regular annual contribution of €180 is allocated to 36 Draws x €5 in each Draw. An annual contribution greater than €180 is allocated to the first 36 Draws at €5 per Draw, before commencing a wrap-around to the first Draw for further allocations of €5 per Draw. For example, a single annual contribution of €200 is allocated 36 Draws x €5 and then back to the first four Draws with €5 x 4 Draws. Therefore, annual contributions and contributions paid other than monthly are entered into Draws at the rate of €5.00 per draw until the full amount of the contribution has been allocated.
  7. Contributors are entered on The Care Trust Contributor database and issued with a unique Contributor ID, in respect of his/her enrolment. This ID should be quoted in all correspondence with The Care Trust. A Contributor with more than one enrolment will have a Contributor ID for each enrolment.
  8. The Care Trust maintains an account for each Contributor ID. This Contributor account details contributions received and amounts processed by The Care Trust to purchase Draw tickets.
  9. A result sheet giving names and addresses of prizewinners will be published, but responsibility cannot be accepted for errors, misprints or other circumstances, which fail to give correct information. Results will also be published on The Care Trust website and/or may be printed in the national/local press.
  10. Contributors’ personal data, held by The Care Trust (such as name, address, Contributor ID, bank account details etc.) will only be used for the purposes of administering and marketing the Draws. Contributors can access their personal data on The Care Trust e-portal, by logging in to ‘My Care Trust Account’ on The Care Trust website using their surname and unique Contributor ID. Contributors can also request a copy of their account by calling the office or by emailing
  11. Contributors receive a thank you letter upon sign up and a letter of acknowledgment of cancellation when ceasing. Each year, Contributors receive an update on funds raised by The Care Trust and issued to the Beneficiaries.
  12. Draw receipts are recognised as income when matched with the relevant Contributor. Amounts due from income to the Beneficiaries as per the Gaming and Lotteries Acts 1956 to 2019 are transferred monthly to the Beneficiaries and are reported in the monthly management accounts to The Care Trust Board and, annually, to An Garda Síochána.

The Care Trust conforms to SEPA (Single European Payments Area) scheme Rules for the operation and administration of Direct Debits. The Care Trust complies with the Charities Governance Code as issued by the Charities Regulator and the Guidelines for Charitable Organisations on Fundraising from the Public.

A copy of these Rules & Procedures shall be provided on request and shall be published on The Care Trust website
