Improve & even Save lives - Our UK Veterans Need You!
Huge numbers of British ex-forces who have served our country find themselves out of work, homeless, in debt and struggling with mental health issues such as PTSD.
The National Veterans Raffle provides UK Armed Forces & Emergency Services specialist charities with a free online charity raffle platform to attract additional public support and to help secure a new and vital funding lifeline, without which they cannot support veterans in the community with the continued help that they truly need & deserve.
Something that cannot be stressed enough though is that up to a staggering 95% of the National Veterans Raffle proceeds goes back into the combined Charity & Prizes pot. This is significantly more than any other veterans’ lottery within the United Kingdom. Most lotteries typically only manage to apportion around half of what we do, due to not managing or promoting their lotteries themselves.
Support for the listed Good Causes via Veterans Raffle is growing steadily and for good reason. People are Joining the National Veterans Raffle because they heard about us from a friend, a family member, or co-worker. Veterans Raffle isn’t growing because of “celebrity” endorsements, sponsorships, or big paid advertising budgets, but rather from the most powerful form of advertising on the planet: word of mouth!

How your donation makes a difference
The National Veterans Raffle is a free additional fundraising source for UK veterans’ charities that are most in need of your help - small, local-volunteer run charities struggling to make ends meet. Veterans Raffle provides use of this regular funding facility as this is critical to our small charities continued success in providing their invaluable services.
Veterans Raffle don’t follow the old traditional grant application route because it's just not what the smaller charities are geared up for. Very few have the necessary skills to undertake such a task. Another major disadvantage to the old grant system is the delay in receiving a response or acceptance, if indeed they're lucky! The National Veterans Raffle keep things simple. They form relationships built on trust and respect all the charities to make best use of their unrestricted monthly funding generated by this unique charity raffle.
The National Veterans Raffle doesn't use a complex number sequence, with additional hurdles like bonus balls or having to match the order that numbers come out. Nor the further disadvantage with the top prize being linked to an unfair rollover – they just keep things safe & simple!
The National Veterans Raffle doesn't mess people about. There's a winner every single draw because only valid subscriber names go into each draw. All draw results and prize notifications are electronic which means that there's never a lost ticket or an unclaimed prize, just happy loyal supporters every month!
UK veterans charities that use the National Veterans Raffle to help fundraise:
We saw the Veterans Raffle advertised locally and upon visiting their website we instantly became aware of just how little we knew about lotteries in general, including those we had been supporting for years. With such compelling facts right before my eyes, it became a ‘No-Brainer’ to switch my support to the Veterans Raffle.Catherine - NHS Nurse
The Veterans Raffle have been with us from the very start of our journey, the support that we have received to date has made life changing differences allowing us to develop as a new non-profit organisation and deliver our support services to our veterans and their families. We are extremely pleased that the Veterans Raffle will be sponsoring our first ever annual carp fishing shield trophy event which will help many of our veterans. We owe so much to the Veterans Raffle so please show your support by signing up!Gary Stockton, Phoenix Heroes
In 2018 we started work on the Basha Project, so our donations from Veterans Raffle couldn’t have come at a better time. A veterans’ residential retreat at Fort Cumberland in Portsmouth and Southsea, this is somewhere for veterans to spend time with others who may be dealing with similar issues and gain access to mental health support as well as advice on housing, benefits, and careers. Whether our veterans come to learn a new skill or seek the comfort and support of like-minded folk, we have high hopes for the Basha Project and Veterans Raffle is helping us to achieve them.Gary Weaving, Forgotten Veterans UK
I have always supported Veterans and seen lots of charities advertising for regular donations by playing lotteries or raffles etc. I picked this one to sign up for because of the high percentage that actually goes to the charities and because of the chosen charities it supports - independent charities, not so well known, and they are supporting themselves and making a huge difference to Veterans lives.Louise - PORTSMOUTH
Having been an army wife for seven years to my husband who served 17 years with the REME, I wished to offer support of Veterans Raffle and the charities they help.Sheila – FERNDOWN
The role of our out of hours’ response car service is to battle the risk of suicide. Having had a vehicle vandalised recently, the donation from Veterans Raffle came at just the right time. It’s allowed us to hit the ground running, replace stolen equipment and continue to provide the out-of-hours’ service to veterans in need in some of the remotest parts of East Anglia and Suffolk.Luke Woodley, CEO Walnut Tree Project
I previously lived in Northern Ireland and I saw how badly soldiers and police were treated during many decades of conflict.... I instantly knew Veterans Raffle was something I wanted to support.Jan – BROADWATER
My Grandfather fought in the Somme and died years later of suspected trauma (PTSD). My Father served on HMS Belfast '41 - '46 and my uncle flew in the RAF. Never played any lotteries before but felt compelled to support Veterans Raffle.Tim – COLCHESTER
I was delighted when I heard I’d won a cash prize. I entered Veterans Raffle to support smaller veterans’ charities most in need, I think it’s a wonderful idea and admirable venture. Winning was a bonus, a really nice one!Katy - CHICHESTER
Over the years we’ve become more aware of the issues that a number of our veterans are suffering from. Most people don’t have to look back too far to find family links to the military and wonder if they too had suffered as a result of their service? So when Veterans Raffle came along we felt it was an ideal opportunity to help support lesser-known veterans groups. I’ve already won 2 cash prizes and that’s been a real bonus!Patricia - BROADWATER
I saw that money was going to smaller, more needy charities. I like the fact that charities have been hand-selected too, for offering worthwhile specialist support to veterans.Nick Bartlett, @TheCoffeeCamp Proprietor
