A HOSPITAL worker is giving people the chance to win a 4-bed home in Yorkshire with just a £2 raffle ticket.
The lucky winner will be mortgage-free while some of the money raised will be donated to the NHS.
The detached property is being raffled by Nick Wyril, a 34-year-old patient service manager, instead of being sold in the typical way.
He plans to give 10% of the 250,000 ticket sales to an NHS charity, Metro reports – £50,000.
Raffles have become increasingly popular as an alternative to a traditional house sale – but they do come with risks.
Mr Wyril told Metro: “It’s an amazing opportunity for someone to be mortgage-free for the price of a coffee.
“We have loved living here but we decided we needed a bigger house and we didn’t want to go down the conventional route of selling.
“I’d seen another couple selling their house by raffle tickets and I started looking into it and realised you can donate some of the sales to charity through the raffle website.
“It seemed like the right thing to give something back to the NHS after what has been a truly horrendous year for everyone.”
In addition to the four bedrooms, the house features an en-suite with the master bedroom, garage and orangery with log burner.
The property is located on a cul-de-sac and is five-years-old.
The lucky winner will also have no legal fees to pay.

The raffle is taking place on Raffall.com and closes at midnight on July 1 or when all the tickets are sold – whichever is earlier.
There is no guide price on the property but the average price of a detached property in West Yorkshire is £332,759 according to Rightmove.
A flat in East London worth £500,000 was raffled for just £10 a ticket last year.
