Lottery terms and conditions

The Havens Weekly Draw Terms & Conditions

All profits from The Havens Weekly Draw go directly towards the care provided at Fair Havens Adult Hospice and Little Havens Hospice.

1. New members will be sent a unique randomly selected draw number(s) created by approved secure computer software.

The Havens Weekly Draw Office may reject an application at their discretion, if they consider they have enough reason to do so. The applicant would have the right to appeal against such a decision, by contacting the Havens Weekly Draw Office.

Members must be over 16 and resident in Great Britain (excluding The Channel Islands and Isle of Man).

2. All subscriptions received at a minimum of £1 per week payable in advance will be entered into the weekly draw using the unique draw number. The draw will normally take place each Friday*.

Monthly subscriptions of £4.34 include 34p which accumulates and funds the 13th week, which occurs every three months.

* We reserve the right, subject to holidays and unforeseen circumstances to change the draw date without notice. If a draw is delayed it will take place as soon as possible and before the next weekly draw.

3. The current weekly prize fund is £1500:

  • 1st Prize: £1000
  • 2nd Prize: £200* (*Rollover)
  • 3rd Prize: £50
  • 4th Prizes: £10 x 5
  • 5th Prizes: £5 x 40.

4. ‘Rollover’ Prize – the £200 prize will be entered into a separate draw. As well as those members who are ‘in credit’, this draw will include members who have been in the draw in the past, but whose entries have been cancelled, or have lapsed, plus any void or unallocated entry numbers. If the prize is won by an entry which is in credit for that week, the prize will be paid. But if the winning number drawn is NOT in credit, then the prize will NOT be won, and the value will be carried forward to the following week. For each week the prize is not won, it will rollover until it is won. This procedure will continue up to 50 weeks, at which point the rollover prize becomes£10,000. For the draw that week only, the rollover draw will only be made amongst the members in credit for that week, thus guaranteeing that the prize is won.

5. Prize winners are notified by post within 1 week of the draw taking place which will include the relevant cheque. Weekly winning numbers are published on our website cheques will be kept for a minimum of 6 months; any cheques not cashed after this date will be treated as a donation.
