Frequently asked questions about the Amnesty Weekly Lottery
If you’re new to our lottery, this is a great place to find out what it’s all about!
How does the Amnesty Weekly Lottery work?
It’s a fun way to support Amnesty International UK. It costs just £1 per entry and 15 winners are electronically picked at random every Friday. You have the chance to win incredible prizes and you’re helping to support our fight for a fairer world for everyone.
What prizes can I win in the Amnesty Weekly Lottery?
Every single week, 15 lucky people will win a cash prize! For 51 weeks of the year, the top prize is £1,000. Once a year, our top prize increases to a fantastic £10,000 in the Superdraw! There are 14 other prizes up for grabs each week, ranging from £100 to £10.
Can I play the Amnesty Weekly Lottery?
You must be 18 or over to enter the Amnesty Weekly Lottery. You also need to be a resident of Great Britain. Unfortunately you can’t enter if you live in Northern Ireland, or on the Channel Islands or Isle of Man. See full terms & conditions.
How do I enter the Amnesty Weekly Lottery?
- Select how many entries you would like each week. Remember the more entries you buy, the more chance you have of winning £1,000 or even £10,000 in our annual Superdraw!
- Choose how you want to pay: monthly Direct Debit or a one-off payment by debit card. A Direct Debit is the easiest way to take part. You’ll never miss a draw, and it reduces our costs and helps as much money as possible fund our human rights campaigns.
- To get started, you just need to fill in this secure online form.
- Confirm your details and complete the payment.
- That’s it! You’ll now be entered into the draw every week (as long as you have credit).
If you prefer to enter by phone, you can call us on 020 7033 1777 (Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm). You can also contact us if you’d like to enter offline. We will post you a form. You will just need to fill in your details and pay by debit card or cheque.
How will I know if I’ve won the Amnesty Weekly Lottery?
You can check the results of all our recent draws on our winners page. There is no need to claim – if you are a lucky winner, you will receive your winners’ cheque in the post.
Who are Amnesty International?
We are a global movement of ordinary people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. We work to protect women, men and children wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied. We investigate and expose human rights abuses. We educate and mobilise the public to campaign for change. And we help transform societies to create a safer, more just world for everyone.
How does my money help?
Without you and other kind supporters, we wouldn’t be able to uncover and expose human rights atrocities around the world. We couldn’t campaign for people who have been unfairly imprisoned to be reunited with their families. And we couldn’t hold governments to account and demand change.
Since 1961, we’ve helped win freedom for over 50,000 wrongly imprisoned people. We’ve helped changed laws and brought perpetrators of human rights violations to justice all over the world. But we can’t stop yet and that’s why we need your support.
You can find out more about our life-changing human rights work on the main Amnesty International UK website.
How is Amnesty International UK funded?
We rely on the generosity of our wonderful supporters! Almost all of our funding comes from individuals. Without people like you, we simply couldn’t stand up for fairness and the rights we’re all entitled to.
We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion. We don’t seek or accept money from governments or political parties to fund our work campaigning against human rights abuses.
