Hat-maker to raise £1m by selling 500,000 RAFFLE tickets 

A hat-maker is hoping to raise £1 million for her business by raffling off her stunning country home.

Tricia Hamilton is selling her 19th century cottage near Bristol by charging buyers just £2 a ticket, after finding it hard to find a buyer.

Roselands was built in 1829 and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two reception rooms, a number of outbuildings and sits on an acre of land.
