It’s time to dream again

As an Island we have shown that we can come together and overcome great adversity when it really matters. We have a big reason to be proud of ourselves.

Now, there is a change lingering in the air. Can you feel it?

We are emerging from hiding as different people. We have learnt more about who we are and what is important to us.

Now is not time to return to the old, but to launch ourselves into the new; to set our course for unexplored lands.

It’s time to dream again.

Which leads me to an important announcement. Our most in-demand winning opportunity—The Big Summer Lottery—is back for 2020, taking place on Saturday 26th September.

With never seen before rewards, coupled with an enormous positive impact on the lives of children, this really is not an opportunity to be missed.

Last Year

2019 was a record year all round for The Big Summer Lottery—there was an unparalleled demand for tickets and a record amount of money raised. We are so thankful for the support from our Island. Were you involved?

Onward and upward! This year we are keeping the best of 2019, while stacking yet more delights to the top of the pile:

  • The Big Prize has INCREASED to £130,000!
  • Our first ever opportunity to ditch petrol/diesel expenses once and for all with the second prize—the all new Mini Electric! (Chosen by YOU the Guernsey public in our island-wide poll)
  • A voucher for an electric bike for our 4th prize, for the first time.
  • Another first—we have included something for your home in the prize list.
  • The ticket price is staying the same—£50!

Judging by the feedback we have received this year already, this thing is set to go off like a rocket and eclipse even last years success. We hope you will be on board!

2019 Winners

“I bought the ticket primarily because it was such a good cause and I wanted to contribute. I never dreamed that mine would be the winning ticket. I was astounded when I heard my number on the radio and realised I had actually won the top prize.

It was wonderful to win such a large amount but far more important is the fact that a substantial amount of cash was raised for children who really need help.”

– 2019 £125,000 winner


“…I was in the middle of finding out my car battery was flat when I felt my phone ringing in my pocket. I was surprised to say the least! To use the old cliche I don’t usually win these sort of things so it was very exciting to win 3rd prize which was quite a significant win! My girlfriend and I are going to use the travel vouchers to spend a month exploring New Zealand in a camper van. Certainly makes a change from the budget holiday i’ve been doing in France for the last 10 years!”

– 2019 £5,000 holiday winner


“I must say I was a very surprised winner, I am also pleased that in my small way I have helped Hope for a Child, to help others.”

– 2019 iPhone 11 Pro winner

The Causes

The Big Summer Lottery is Hope for a Child’s most important 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 5 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 over the last 4 years:


We are very thankful for these gems:

Thank you again for your life-changing support.
