The raffle raised over £10,000 for CSC campaigns and we would like to thank everyone who bought and sold tickets this year.
The winner was CSC member Matthew Bailey, from East Sussex. When he received news of his win he said:

I am now really looking forward to going back to enjoy the country and the people, and definitely visiting the capital this time around"
