Our lottery now costs £2 a week. This is an increase from the previous price of £1 a week. This price change was made as of April 2016.

We are no longer accepting Standing Orders as a method of payment when people sign up to play the lottery.

Those who currently pay using a Standing Order will need to ensure they have changed the payment amount to £2 a week to ensure they are entered in the expected amount of draws. If you are only paying £1 a week you are now only being entered into the draw for half of the number of weeks as you were previously.

Those paying by Standing Order (S/O) will also need to change their payment method to Direct Debit (D/D). It's important when setting up a Direct Debit to replace the Standing Order that the customer also notifies their bank to cancel the Standing Order- we cannot do this for you.

It's important to cancel your Standing Order when you set up a Direct Debit as all monies received for the lottery will be entered into the draw if there are sufficient funds. If a Direct Debit payment has been set up but a Standing Order has not been cancelled BOTH payments will be entered into the draw and refunds cannot be given.
