Welcome. Whether you are an old hand or a fresh face to The Big Summer Lottery, we are delighted you are here.

Our one aim for this event is simple—to create maximum rewards. We have coupledirresistible prizes with real, lastingsocial impact.

When you purchase a ticket, 100% of the profit goes to powerful children’s causes, meaning you have a tangible positive impact on young lives both in Malawi and at home in Guernsey (see below for the incredible causes).

(Did you see what was made possible because of The Big Summer Lottery 2021? Take a look at The Hope Report.)

This year, ticket holders not only get the chance to win an eye-popping £100,000. The extraordinary, brand new Volkswagen ID. Buzz is up for grabs too (or £40,000 if you prefer). It is certainly the most expensive vehicle we’ve ever put on the prize list.

What would you do with £100,000? A deposit on a first home? Put up the extension you have always dreamed of? Disappear into the sunset for a few months?

Imagine cruising off into the french countryside with the family in the brand new, ravishingly stylish Volkswagen ID. Buzz.

So get ready—we hope you will take part in the fun with us.

2021 Winners

Congratulations to last year’s top prize winners. Thank you for providing this heart warming, inspiring quote:

“About a month ago, my son dropped me off some shopping. With it he handed me a ticket for The Big Summer Lottery 2021 that he had bought me that morning.

We joked that it was a lucky ticket but then we also joked that the last few years had felt quite unlucky for us – I had lost my husband suddenly and life had been fairly difficult for me and my family, not only emotionally but financially too.

When we received the call last Friday to say that we had won, words simply don’t describe the feeling of happiness, joy and sheer shock.

We have all been living in a dream world since that phone call – we have laughed, we have cried and still simply cannot believe it – it’s a dream come true for me and my family.

We can’t thank Hope for a Child enough – not only for the charitable work they do, but for changing our lives.

If anyone is thinking “It can’t happen to me”, we are testament to the fact that it can!

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.

(See last year’s Hope Report HERE.)

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.

To everyone involved, 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:

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.
