Meet Phil

Thank you for taking interest in! As you peruse the competition, you may be wondering, Who is behind this competition? What are the competition logistics? Why are we doing this? When will the winners be announced? How will we choose a winner?

To answer those questions and to provide additional context, here’s a bit of background information about me and the competition I’m running.

My name is Philip Leckie and I’m the owner of 62 Alexander Street in Airdrie, Scotland. I’ve decided to raffle off the house with proceeds in excess of the home value going to St. Andrews Hospice.

A native of Scotland, I’m originally from a small village called Chapelhall, very close to Airdrie, which is 25 minutes from Glasgow. I have been living in Singapore for the last seven years with my wife Rhea and our now 3-year-old son Raphael.

I wanted to raffle off my house in Airdrie because after 15 years of ownership, I felt it was time to move the property on to another person. Charity is personally important to me, so instead of simply selling the home, I wanted to do something unique -- hence the idea for the home raffle was born.

The raffle has been in play for the past year, with the first ticket free of charge, and each subsequent ticket costing £2.50/ticket. On the 20th of December, one winner will be chosen at random.
