‘We have had interest from as far away as India.

‘We decided to do this after I had a cancer scare and my brother is unwell, although I’m not sure what we are going to do afterwards but I can imagine Debbie and I will stay in the village.’

‘I’ll let it go if we sell at least 50,000 tickets that would raise £1.2m, it would cover our costs and raise £100,000 for Cancer Research, a lot of money will go to pay HMRC.

‘It’s an amazing opportunity for someone, as it’s a profitable business that will be mortgage free and the village of Llangernyw is lovely with a great community.’

‘We’ve ran the business for six years, and will be very sad to leave.’

In the terms and conditions it states: ‘All entries to the competition are final and no refunds shall be made at any time or for any reason, except in the case of entries submitted after the closing date.
