You may have seen in the press, The Yard is lucky enough to have been selected as the charity beneficiary of a very special raffle! Donna Pirie is raffling off her £1.7m mansion in Laurencekirk for £25 per entry – see a video of it here. The Yard will receive 20% of all entry fees.

The Yard families, staff, volunteers and supporters are all welcome to enter the competition at Entry involves completing a short crossword (once only) and making a payment of £25 x as many entries as you wish – so it couldn’t be easier!

Please help raise more funds for The Yard by sharing our competition news with your friends and on social media.

If you have any questions, the full details along with terms and conditions are clearly laid out at

Thanks for your support!
