Do you qualify?

Entry to The Big Summer Lottery is limited to people aged 18 or over, with a residential address within The Bailiwick of Guernsey.

Entering the lottery is not a guarantee that you will win a prize. Please do not spend money on tickets that you could not afford to donate to charitable causes.

We ask individuals to stick to a maximum of 10 tickets.

The Causes

The Big Summer Lottery is Hope for a Child’s biggest fundraising event of the year – it powers so much of what we are doing with families in Malawi. Thousands of very low income households are being enabled to stand on their own feet and meet their own needs because of your support.

We are also using some of the money raised through The Big Summer Lottery to support charities working with children in Guernsey.

100% of the profits from your ticket purchase will be used to enable families to flourish and young lives to be turned around.

Whether you are an old hand or this is your first Big Summer Lottery draw, we want to say a huge thank you for your support.

Here are the local causes that have benefited from The Big Summer Lottery in addition to Hope for a Child over the last 4 years:
