BHWT Charity Lottery
How does the lottery work?
For every £1 you play each week you’ll be given a unique six-digit lottery number.
Every Friday a winning number is drawn at random by our lottery provider, Unity. This lottery is a number match game so, if three or more of your digits are in the same position as the winning number, you get a prize!
And that’s not all! We’ll also be offering ‘bonus prizes’ four times a year (March, June, September and December). All active players of the weekly Lottery that month will automatically be entered with the winner drawn at random, so no need to do anything.
For the weekly number match game, if the winning number sequence was 123456, the lottery number 163057 would be a 3-digit winning match because 3 digits are positioned in the same place in the sequence.
Why should you play our lottery?
At least 50p from every £1 you play goes to us, directly towards helping save commercial laying hens from slaughter. The rest goes towards the prize pot and any administrative costs.
The money you raise by playing the BHWT lottery helps keep our vans on the road rehoming hens otherwise destined for slaughter because, at 72 weeks old, their use to the commercial egg industry comes to an end.
However, we know that they’ve got lots more life to give which is why we rehome them with loving families in back gardens across the UK. They get to live out a free-range retirement with grass beneath their feet, rootling around for bugs and slugs on a daily basis, doing what chickens do best!
By playing our lottery you’re supporting our work rehoming 50,000 hens every year as well as all our other projects like Hens as Therapy and Improving Pet Hen Health, which helps not just hens here on home soil but across the globe too.
So, why should you play our lottery? Because not only are you in with the best odds of winning a prize, you’re also helping hens to boot.
