Last year, we gave away more than £32,000 in our our charity lottery! And guess what? Nine parent carers each took home the £1,000 jackpot!

We now have an incredible community of nearly 3,000 lottery players who help fund our essential services for families with disabled children. And every single one of them has a chance of winning up to £10,000 every Friday. Talk about a win-win situation!

We’re fast approaching nearly 100 winners every single week – help us reach this milestone and add some excitement to your Fridays!

Our winners highlights from 2023

Last July, we had an incredible month with four parent carers each winning £1,000! Like Georgia and Stacey, who both discovered the Contact Weekly Lottery while browsing through our information and advice on our website.

Georgia, our £1,000 winner from Liverpool, shared her excitement:

“My little boy has Autism and is non-verbal, so I joined a few online classes through Contact to help with his speech and language. When I was looking for more information on Contact’s website, I stumbled upon the lottery.

I was totally blown away! Winning the money meant we could really enjoy our summer holiday as a family. We are going to use some of the funds to buy my little boy a much-needed adapted pram!”

And Stacey couldn’t believe it when she also won big just in time for the summer holidays:

“The school SENCO recommended Contact for information and advice. I came across the lottery on their website, thinking I have nothing to lose, but families have something to gain. I did it and here I am a winner of £1,000 just before summer holidays! It’s absolutely amazing!

I hope more families join, because it’s great to give something back while being in with a chance of winning.”
