How you help

Your £1 can change people’s lives.

Playing for one month could help to answer a call from a person who has given up hope.

Playing for one year could give a bereaved person on-going support to help someone see a way through the pain.

Your support today means more people can get the help they need. Thank you.

Cruse’s Weekly Lottery is run by Unity Lottery, an external lottery manager.

When you join the lottery, you’ll be sent a six-digit lottery number which is selected at random. This will be unique to you for as long as you play. And you can have more than one chance and number if you wish.

Each Friday, the weekly lottery is drawn – if more than 3 digits from your personal number match the draw, you’re guaranteed a prize.

If you win a cash prize a cheque will be sent to you automatically, no need to claim!
