Donate and the Lifeboat Lotto

How can you help us?

Have a collection tin in your workplace, join our Lifeboat Lotto, have a sponsored event, leave us something in your legacy, make a one off donation; there are plenty of ways you can help support us. Read on below:

It’s a Lotto with a difference. Entry is only £2 a week, hardly the price of a pint, and there are no weekly entries to fill in, just pick 4 numbers between 1 and 31 and fill them on the application form. You only need to do this once as your numbers are then registered in the Lifeboat Lotto computer and are entered into each weekly draw for as long as you pay.


Win up to £5,000

Paying is easy too, no hands in pockets or purses, payment is made by either cheque for £52 which covers 6 months entries or by monthly or quarterly Standing Order. No cash changes hands – Nothing could be easier.

Match 4 numbers and you will win the roll-over jackpot which starts at £500 and increases by £100 a week until a winner is found. If no one matches the numbers drawn, a winner is guaranteed when the jackpot reaches £5000. Match 3 numbers and win a £20.

Winning numbers are published each week on the Lifeboat Lotto website.
