Every week we give away 100 cash prizes, ranging from £5 up to £1,000. For just £1 a week, you will be assigned a unique weekly lottery number which will be entered into our draw every Friday. You can have as many weekly entries as you choose.

As well as the chance to win cash you will be helping to fund our vital work, such as research, campaigning and support, as all profits are guaranteed to go towards the work of Diabetes UK.

How do I enter?

You can pay by credit or debit card – paying this way means your entry is renewed automatically – or you can pay by cheque or postal order. You will receive confirmation of entry within 21 days. The letter will confirm the date of the first draw in which you will be included and details of your unique draw number or numbers.

Who can enter?
