Join our lottery

Join our charity lottery and you could win up to £25,000 while raising funds for the animals in our care at the same time!

NAWT has established itself for 50 years as the animal welfare charity that never stops caring, and demand for our work continues to grow. We operate five centres, rescuing and rehoming around 1500 animals a year. Whether you already own a pet or are looking for a new companion, we’re here to help.

Your support is so important to us because we simply couldn’t continue our work without the kind support of people like you. As a charity, the National Animal Welfare Trust doesn’t receive any government funding so the animals in our care rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters and the love and dedication of our staff and volunteers.

Our charity lottery is a fantastic way to generate funds for NAWT because you’re in with a great chance of winning a prize of up to £25,000 whilst also donating towards supporting the welfare and the future of our animals.

Signing up is easy; simply sign up here with Direct Debit. Alternatively, give us a call on 0208 950 0177 (option 1) and we can post or email an application form out to you.

Thanks for your support; it truly is appreciated by everyone here at NAWT.     

How it works

For just £1 per week you will be allocated with a six digit Unity Lottery number, which will remain yours for as long as you keep playing. You can purchase more than one number if you wish.

Every Friday, the lucky winning numbers are selected at random and winners who pay by Direct Debit will receive their prize via Direct Credit, so there is no need for you to claim. However, the jackpot prize will continue to be paid via cheque. Players who pay by cheque or debit card, will also continue to receive their winnings via cheque. 

You must be 18 or over to enter. Winners have to match 3, 4, 5 or all 6 digits of the winning number in the correct place in the sequence.

Every entry has a 1 in 63 chance of winning a prize.

Winning numbers are revealed each week. Match up your numbers to win up to £25,000!

From the 2nd February 2024, all winnings are now paid via Direct Credit for those who pay by Direct Debit. This will mean for Direct Debit players, cash winnings will be paid directly into the players bank account.

There is no limit on entries each week so increase your chances with 2 or 3 entries each week, and with every entry you’ll be raising money for NAWT. Good luck!
