COVID-19 Update from Father Hudsons Care

Father Hudson's Lotteries

You could win up to £25,000 each week while supporting Father Hudson’s Care.

By playing one of our lotteries, you will help us fund numerous services for people at their time of need, including: helping homeless people make a fresh start; offering refugees and migrants a helping hand; empowering people with disabilities to live life on their terms; caring for older people and those living with dementia; supporting children and families experiencing adversity; and providing support for people affected by adoption or having lived in care.

Weather Lottery

Each entry is just £1 per week. When you join, you receive a unique six-digit number for each entry bought. To win a prize, you must match at least three numbers in the right order. Results are based on Fahrenheit temperatures in six European cities, as reported weekly in the Daily Mail.

For every ticket bought, we will receive at least 37%, which could be up to 65% after all costs and prizes have been paid.

Support older people by playing Potto Lotto or the Lyme Lottery

/media/getinvolved/library/yoga-cropped.jpgThe Potto Lotto and Lyme Lottery are weekly lotteries that raise money for good causes that support people living in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme respectively. 

By playing one of these, you will help our Young at Heart project extend a hand of friendship and support to older people living in those areas who are experiencing social isolation.

Both lotteries cost £1, with 50% of the ticket price going to Young at Heart groups in those areas. Each ticket consists of six numbers from zero to nine. The lotteries are drawn on Saturday night and prizes are given to players with tickets that match the first or last two to six numbers. Match all six for the jackpot.
