Improve & even Save lives - Our 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 physical and mental health issues such as PTSD.
Veterans Raffle provides grassroots UK Armed Forces, Emergency Services, Search & Rescue, Coastguard and qualifying Merchant Navy etc., veterans charities (beneficiaries) with an additional funding source via their online charity raffle platform. With the public's support of Veterans Raffle this vital funding lifeline will help guarantee the continuance of the help that our veterans' truly need & deserve.
Veterans Raffle is unique in the UK. No other organisation offers what we do for the grassroots veterans' charities, hubs and clubs. No other veteran's lottery rewards its subscribers (proportionately) as much as Veterans Raffle. No other UK veteran's lottery can apportion more than Veterans Raffle to charity & prizes combined, because no other UK veteran's lottery promoter can operate at only 5%. Veterans Raffle is truly a non-profit and surely therefore our nation's veteran's lottery of choice.
Support for the listed beneficiaries on Veterans Raffle's website is growing steadily and for good reason. People are Joining 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.

Veterans Charities benefitting from Veterans Raffle:
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
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 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 Veterans Raffle so please show your support by joining today!Gary Stockton, Phoenix Heroes
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
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 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
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
We saw 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 it became a ‘No-Brainer’ to switch my support to Veterans Raffle.Catherine - NHS Nurse
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 was delighted when I heard I’d won a 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
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 join because of the high percentage that actually goes to the charities and because of how it supports charities - independent charities, not so well known, and they are supporting themselves and making a huge difference to Veterans lives.Louise - PORTSMOUTH
I saw that money was going to smaller, more needy charities. I like the fact that charities have been approved due to offering worthwhile specialist support to veterans.Nick Bartlett, @TheCoffeeCamp Proprietor
