Flight for Life Lottery

Our Flight for Life Lottery is the charity’s single biggest income stream. It provides reliable and regular funds which enable us to plan for the future. We know that many of you are already supporting us by having an ongoing lottery membership. This is something that is greatly appreciated, as it is these funds that help us to continue saving lives across Dorset and Somerset, every single day.

Our very first lottery draw took place on 19th December 2000 and since then, it has changed very little. Every member pays £1 per week (£4.34 a month) for an entry into our weekly draw and has the chance of winning our Jackpot prize of £1,000, or one of the other prizes on offer.

New Annual Lottery Superdraw

In September 2022, we upgraded our Flight for Life Lottery to £5 a month and added a new Superdraw to the weekly game. The Superdraw takes place annually and gives members a chance of winning a one-off prize of £2,500. Any new member who has joined since last September is already part of this extra game and by paying their £5 per month, they are entered into the weekly draw and automatically get one entry into the Superdraw. The more months that you are a member, the more entries into the Superdraw you have, as these are accumulative.

Our first ever Superdraw will take place on Wednesday 13th September 2023.

Information for current lottery members

If you are a current member of our Flight for Life Lottery, you also have the opportunity of being part of the new Superdraw. You may have received a telephone call from a company called Unity4 recently, asking if you would be able to help the charity by increasing your regular payment to the equivalent of £5 per month, in return for being entered into the Superdraw.

You may think that an extra 66p on your monthly payment isn’t going to make a significant difference, however, if enough of our current supporters agree to this upgrade, we are hopeful that our first Superdraw could raise in excess of £80,000. With the approximate cost of one mission equating to £3,000, the Superdraw could potentially help to fund the cost of 26 life-saving missions, which would be amazing.

Lottery canvasser recruitment

Our canvassers play an important role in signing up new supporters to our Flight for Life Lottery or regular giving schemes. They will either go door-to-door, or work from retail venues or hospitals across the region, interacting with the public face-to-face and giving them an insight into the charity’s work. We are always looking for canvassers to join our existing team. If you are a good communicator, then this could be the job for you.
