Those beautiful prizes!
A new week in Crystal Palace. Crossing the 3000 tickets sold milestone last week was amazing. Thank you to everyone who has supported our #ShopSE19 raffle, offered a prize or bought tickets.
The team has been busy gathering all the info and stories from our local traders and sharing mini profiles. Here's a taste of them and you can catch-up across our SE19Lates social media channels.
We thought it would be good to take a moment and have a look at the long list of prizes already announced. If ticket sales keep happening, more prizes will be coming your way before our big prize draw day on 3 December.
From vouchers to spend and help with your local Christmas shopping, to some beautiful hand-picked objects to unique experiences to enjoy here in Crystal Palace. The range of prizes offered by our traders is FAB-U-LOUS and we want as many local people as possible to get a chance to take part, even though we need to be much more remote than we would like, during this month in lockdown.
We hope these prizes give you loads of ideas and inspiration for your Christmas wish-lists and show you how many things you can get here close to home in Crystal Palace. Many of our traders are taking orders and doing click and collect this month, so do get in touch with them direct if there's something on our list you'd love... If you can shop local that little bit more this year, it will make a huge difference in our local community and high streets.
Take a deep breath, maybe sit down. In no particular order, here are the 47 prizes* we've announced so far... and there might, just be more on the way, if you keep buying those tickets!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Believe it or not, there are still more prizes to be added to this list. We're so happy to be able to include so many of our beloved independent high street traders here in Crystal Palace and give them a little bit of extra promotion at this important time of year. No sign of partridges or pear trees yet, but who knows...
Ready to take part? Maybe want to buy a few more tickets to increase your chances? Don't blame you.
This year's raffle is already helping our local traders, by raising awareness and spreading the shop local message, especially during lockdown, when many have had to shut their doors to the public.
Every time a ticket is sold or someone shares our posts, it tells more people what we have on offer here in SE19. Once we've covered the costs of running this year's promotional raffle and the prizes have been distributed, money raised will be put towards special projects to support our local high street traders next year. Our goal is to help our local businesses thrive and get the message out that Crystal Palace is a wonderful place to shop, eat and spend time.
*See full listing on prize site for expiry dates and more info. All prizes should be collected in-person once the draw is complete and collection tokens emailed to each winner.
