Donate to charity for chances to win a 1-year MasterClass subscription

Having seen other writers doing raffles to give support to Ukraine, I wondered what I could do to help. Then I realised I’m sitting on a year’s subscription of MasterClass. I utterly condemn Russia’s unwarranted attack on Ukraine, and I hope you will join me in supporting the British Red Cross in their appeal.

To be in with a chance to win a one-year subscription to MasterClass, worth £168, read the info below.

  • Go to the British Red Cross DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal page and proceed with a donation. For every £5 you donate, you will get one raffle ticket.
  • Once you receive the confirmation email, forward it to me at
  • This will run until 23:59:59 GMT on Sunday 13th March 2022 DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 23:59:59 GMT FRIDAY 25th March 2022. Any emails I receive after this won’t count, but I encourage you to donate to the appeal regardless, as it’s such an urgent cause.

The fine print

  • Each entry will be assigned a number, and a random number generator will be used to select the winning ticket.
  • The winner will be announced on this blog and on my Twitter (@eldris). I will also contact the winner via the email they entered with.
  • If for any reason the winner doesn’t claim the prize within one month of being contacted, another ticket will be selected.
  • By entering, you agree for me to collect your details for the sole purpose of conducting this raffle.
  • There is no cash alternative. The prize is a one-year subscription to MasterClass. If the winner is an existing subscriber, their subscription will be extended by one year (confirmed by MasterClass support).
