We begin April with news that another parent carer has won a fantastic £1,000 after matching five numbers with the Contact Weekly Lottery.

Michelle from Carterton has supported our campaign work in the past, and decided to take the next step and help Contact financially by playing the Contact lottery. And what a great decision it was! She’s landed £1,000 after just a few months!

“I have only been playing since October, so it’s come as a complete surprise to me!

As a parent of three children with autism spectrum disorder, I have followed Contact’s work for a while. I have signed their petitions and supported their campaigning work.

I decided to sign up for the Contact Lottery after reading about it on Facebook, but it’s the first time I’ve ever won anything this big!”

Beginners luck strikes twice

Sophie from Tonbridge also couldn’t believe her luck when she landed £1,000 this Easter after joining the lottery just a month before!

What an amazing Easter it’s been for both Michelle and Sophie.

Since we launched the Contact Lottery in 2020, we’ve had thousands of winners. Even better, the majority of our £1,000 and £10,000 winners have been parent carers themselves, who tell us they play to help support other families like theirs.

You could be next!

Playing the Contact Lottery is a fun and exciting way to help support our vital work, for as little as £1 a week you too could have the chance to win a prize of up to £10,000.

And the best part is that even if you don’t always win, playing our lottery means you’ll always be supporting other families.
