Our Raise a Smile Weekly Lottery is a draw that takes place every week. Each ticket gives you the chance of winning one of our fantastic cash prizes. Each entry costs just £1.

As the law states that lottery tickets must not be sold to, or by, those under the age of 16 we must therefore abide by this law in accordance with our license.

The Gambling Commission has published codes of practice which help to ensure gambling is operated in a responsible manner. For further information on the Gambling Commission and the Gambling Act, please visit www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk

We are almost entirely reliant on voluntary income to safeguard our vital services into the future. By taking part in our weekly lottery and annual raffles you are helping us continue to make the most of short and precious lives.

There are two options.

Option A - regular subscription

You can join our lottery with a regular monthly, quarterly, bi-annually or annually payment straight from your bank by standing order. 

Option B - one-off play

You can play for a set number of weeks and pay by credit/debit card securely online.

There is no need to choose your numbers. You will be sent a random unique number for each entry that you play.  This number will be yours for the duration of your membership to our lottery.

When you enter our weekly lottery, you will be sent your unique number by post. 

No, the money collected through sale of entries to lottery draws and raffles does not qualify for Gift Aid as it is a payment for your lottery number.

It's no problem as we have a record of your number.  If you would like us to re-send your lottery numbers to you please contact us on 08456 888 911 or drop us an email at lottery@chsw.org.uk.

Every week, there are 14 cash prizes on offer, ranging from £5 to the £1,000 jackpot.

The draw takes place each Friday. Once the draw has taken place, winners are notified by post, and all the winning numbers are published on our website on our lottery results page.

There’s no need for you to do a thing.  If you are one of the lucky winners, we will send your winning cheque to you by post.
