Feeling lucky? Why not enter our weekly lottery today!

The lottery is our largest source of income, funding 50% of our missions. Every year we give 52 supporters £1,000 through our weekly lottery, one lucky supporter £5,000 in our annual prize draw and offer the chance to win instantly via our scratchcards.


For as little as £1 a week or £4.34 a month, not only will you get the chance to win up to £1,000 in our weekly draw, but you will also help keep our helicopters flying. Every Friday, we give away a cool £1,000 and runners up prizes amounting to £350.

How to play

You may subscribe by either advance cheque payment or by direct debit. Our preferred method is direct debit as this reduces administration costs, allowing more of your support to go directly to our cause.

Once you become a member, you will be allocated a unique lucky number which will be entered into each draw that you subscribe to (you can purchase more than one entry per week if you wish). Each Friday our draw takes place with winning numbers being randomly selected by a computer.
