I was completely bowled over on receiving a winning cheque today via the 'Raise a Smile' Lottery - it certainly brought a smile to my face! I have supported the lottery every month since it just about started and had largely forgotten all about it, though I know it brings in much needed income.

In the 2020/21 financial year net proceeds from the Raise a smile Lottery were £421,644, raising a minimum of 55p* in every £1 directly for CHSW and the care it provides. The remaining 45p split between expenses (35p in every £1) and prizes (10p in every £1).

Based on 2020/21 financial year, the likelihood of winning the guaranteed weekly first prize of £1,000 is 1 in 14,050. The chances of winning any of the other 14 prizes in a draw is 1 in 937.

For the Rollover Prize, the chance of winning in a weekly draw is 1 in 191,820, except when the accumulated rollover fund reaches £10,000 when the prize is guaranteed to be won, when the likelihood of winning becomes 1 in 13,414.

*We have made a large investment this year into accruing new members to the lottery which has had an impact on our return, however this will ultimately highly benefit our support of the charity and the care we offer our families in future years.
