If the winner has a physical or mental impairment which would inhibit their ability to enjoy/ make full use of the prize then the Club asks that the winner makes this clear to us when he/she claims the prize so that the Club can consult with the winner well in advance and seek to make such reasonable adjustments as are practical and within our control, based on the circumstances to ensure the winner can enjoy the prize to the fullest extent. Where this is not possible, the Club will provide the winner with an alternative prize of equal value.
