CHECT lottery

For just £1 a week you can be in the CHECT lottery draw and win up to £25,000! Plus, for every £1 you spend, 50p will go directly to CHECT. The lottery is run via Unity. When you sign up, you’ll be given a six-digit lottery number, which will remain yours for as long as you keep playing. You can pay for as many numbers as you like. The winners are selected at random every Friday and prize cheques issued and posted directly to you.

For a six number match the prize will be £25,000, five numbers £1,000, four numbers £25, and every time you match three numbers you will automatically be entered for five prize entries into the following weekend’s draw. To find out more and sign up to the lottery, please visit the Unity Lottery website.

Please note: you must be 16 or over to enter.

A minimum of 50% of the total lottery proceeds are spent on supporting the work carried out by CHECT, 18.4% on prizes and 31.6% on the running cost and administration of the lottery.

The likelihood of an individual winning a prize is 1 in 63.  This information, along with a detailed breakdown of the odds can be found, here.
