As a charity we have to fundraise in as many different ways as possible. Playing our lottery is one way you can make a real difference.

When you play it’s fun and rewarding, because as well as giving you a chance to win, the donkeys also win.

It’s the perfect way to make a donkey’s day. And if you’re lucky enough to scoop the Superdraw top prize of £5,000 it’ll make your day too!

Plus, there’s a £1,000 weekly jackpot up for grabs! Play for just £1 per entry for your chance to win.

Playing is really simple. When you join, you’ll pick how many entries you would like each week. The more entries you play the more chances you have to win.

Every week, we put all the entries into the lottery draw and a random number generator picks out the winners. The first picked receives the jackpot of £1,000, the second receives £250, and so on. We send out all the prizes on the day of the draw, so if you win you don’t need to claim – you’ll just receive a cheque in the post.

You can pay for your entries in advance by Direct Debit. If you choose to pay monthly, for each entry you play we’ll take either £4 or £5 depending on how many Fridays there are in the month. That means you’ll play in all of those draws for your chance to win.

Superdraw prizes

Once a year in January, we run an extra big lottery draw called the Superdraw. The Superdraw replaces the usual prize fund for one week only and offers bigger cash prizes and even more chances to win.

There are over 200 prizes to be won in the Superdraw, as follows:

  • 1st prize =£5,000
  • 2nd prize =£500
  • 3rd prize =£250
  • 4th prize =£5 x 200

The Donkey Sanctuary’s first Superdraw will take place on Friday 28th January 2022 and every January thereafter.
