By playing our lottery, you will help us to save lives and to improve care and support for anyone affected by baby loss. 

How Sands Lottery works

For just £1 per week, you will be allocated with a unique six-digit lottery number, which will remain yours for as long as you wish to keep playing. You can purchase more than one lottery number if you wish. Winners have to match 3, 4, 5 or all 6 digits of the winning number in the correct place in the sequence.

Every Friday, a winning number is drawn. Match your digits to win up to £25,000!

The lucky winners are sent their prizes automatically, so if you win there is no need for you to claim.

You must be 16 or over to enter.


To win a prize, you must match at least three numbers in the right order.

For example, if the winning number sequence was 1234567, the lottery number 163057 would be a 3-digit winning match; because 3 digits are positioned in the same place in the sequence. 

  • Match three numbers and win 5 entries into the next draw
  • Match four numbers and win £25
  • Match five numbers and win £1,000
  • Match six numbers and win £25,000

If you match all six, you win £25,000 guaranteed – no sharing the jackpot!

If you are a winner, prize cheques will be automatically sent to the address you registered when you joined – no need to make a claim.  

If you move house, you can let us know by calling 0203 897 6092 or email
