Play our lottery

Entering our lottery is a fantastic way to support children with life-shortening conditions who desperately need our help – possibly even a child in your neighbourhood.

We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who enters, because our lottery alone covers all our hospice day care - meaning our children get all the care and therapy they need, every day.

Amazing, isn’t it? And there’s always a chance you could hit the jackpot!

What would YOU do with the money?

There are cash prizes to be won every Friday:
  • £750 first prize
  • £150 second prize (ROLLOVER prize of up to £10,000)*
  • £10 for 5 winners 

* If the second prize isn’t won, it keeps rolling over to a maximum of £10,000, when someone is guaranteed to win.

It’s really easy to play!

All you need to do is click here to sign up. You’ll be assigned a unique lottery number, which will be entered automatically into our weekly draw. You can enter as many times as you want, for just £1 per entry. If your number comes up, a cheque will go straight in the post to you. Simple as that!

How is the money used?

Of course, a small part of what our lottery generates pays for the prizes, but the rest helps to fund our essential care and support, like this:

  • Playing for 3 months costs £13 – which pays for a child’s food for a day
  • Playing for 6 months costs £26 – which covers a bereavement session
  • Playing for 12 months costs £52 – which funds an art therapy or a rainbow babies session

If you win a prize

You don’t have to check your numbers weekly as all winners are notified directly. 

Past results

The winning numbers from previous lottery draws are available in our shops, at our head office or available to view on this page. 

We hope to be sending you a prize soon – good luck!
