Our 2021 AGM will be virtual and we've got plenty of fun in store along with some amazing prizes for you in our BTW AGM fundraising raffle.  Check out our blog on the AGM where you can book your virtual seat and we'll be confirming details of the online event to ensure everyone stays safe in the ongoing pandemic (but don't forget to save the date) and read on for more details on our virtual raffle.

A virtual raffle - how does it work?

You can purchase your digital raffle tickets for £1 each right here on our website, just visit our webstore by clicking on the Digital Raffle Ticket product image below to be taken to the product and add as many tickets to your cart by adjusting the quantity.  Because they're digital you won't pay any postage charges for orders of raffle tickets only, as we won't be sending you physical tickets.

You can also add raffle tickets to an order of physical products too (why not check out our New Products and Special Offers?) and we'll send those out in the usual way, whilst entering your digital tickets purchased into our virtual raffle.


You'll receive an email confirming your order with an Order Reference, which becomes your digital raffle ticket number (please check Junk if not received within one hour of ordering).

You'll get the corresponding number of entries in the raffle for the number of tickets in your order, your order number will be proof of entry.  

Please note: ticket sales will close at 10pm Monday 4 October 2021.

I've got my tickets - what happens next?

As we won't be meeting in person, the draw will be recorded, and then from the winning tickets, we will draw the overall winner for our top prize of a Nikki's Nestie live in our virtual AGM event!  So don't forget to book your seat for the Vitual AGM & join us for the the live Raffle draw and much more.

Our checkout process will collect all your details, so should you be lucky enough to be one of our winning tickets, then we will be in touch after the event with your prize.

If you have any questions about the BTW AGM Raffle, please contact us.

What can I win?

We've got some great prizes for you and they're still coming in, so make sure you re-visit this blog or keep your eyes peeled on our social media for follow up announcements.

Our top prize for this AGM Raffle, kindly donated by Nikki of Nikki's Nesties, is a medium dog bed with cover of your choice, made to order after the event.

Top Prize: Nikki's Nestie medium dog bed

This top prize of a quality Nikki's Nestie dog bed will ensure your Border is sleeping in style!  With a huge range of covers to chose from, your Border will feel like the king or queen they are while they snooze, check out Nikki's Nesties website to browse the full range.

We're so excited that Nikki is kindly donating a medium Nestie and our top Raffle winner will be able to choose the cover from any fabric listed on the website, with the bed in either original or easy access style - all in all worth at least £100!  We hope you'll agree it's a good quality British made product and we certainly think there's going to be one happy, snoozy BT out there once they get their paws in and snuggle down . . . you may have trouble getting them out for a walk!  Check out our top model Leo who certainly cuts a handsome figure lounging in his beautiful Nestie!

Nikki is passionate about her products, the idea for which came from the frustration of trying to find something for her own dogs, "I was a bit fed up buying beds every two to three months" she says, "they just didn’t last and I couldn’t keep them clean.  So in 2015 I came up with the Nestie design, but never in a million years did I think to sell them, I literally made them for myself at my dining room table, then a friend asked me to do one for her dog and I thought, 'why not?'.  She was delighted with it and showed her friends, who also wanted one and it escalated from there.  We then made the decision to turn it into a small business and in 2016 we moved to Lincolnshire from London to set up, where we now have a workshop, cutting tables, a stuffing room and two industrial sewing machines.  My husband Ric and I make every element of them by hand, from start to finish, we absolutely love what we do and love seeing 1000’s of happy dogs!"

With so many happy customers, Nikki is understandably proud of the Nesties, however one of the most common comments she receives is about cost.  She explains, "I hear all the time that some people think Nesties are expensive, but we use the best materials on the market.  The stuffing is the highest grade possible, normally used in sofas, so it doesn’t degrade and the other materials we use are of similar robust quality; even the thread we use is bonded and rot proof.  It's a handmade product, we literally stuff each individual section - packing in as much as possible to ensure they don’t go flat; very time consuming but worth the effort, as we've found that blowing machines will only blow so much stuffing in, not packing the sections well enough."

"I have many customers that have had their Nesties for 5 years plus and they are still as good as new, which works out at about £25 per year so it is a good investment.  Nesties will withstand copious amounts of digging, ragging around the place in general and will not loose shape or go flat.  The wipe clean interior is great for bed wetters and puppies; just whip the cover off and machine wash, then wipe the interior down with a cloth and antibacterial spray."

Nikki does have just one word of caution though, in that she says Nesties are not chew proof.  Although, is there anything that can withstand the most determined Border Terrier chewer, that's what we'd like to know?!
