Samaritans Annual Christmas Raffle

Enter our Christmas 2020 Raffle and you could win £5,000!

1st prize £5,000

2nd prize £500

3rd prize £100

Plus 10 prizes of £40

What would you spend your money on? Perhaps a holiday for you and your family? Or some decorating to brighten up your home? Or maybe you could put the money towards buying yourself a new car? Whatever you choose, it would certainly be a great way to mark the end of a difficult year.

Tickets are just £1 each and if you play by 20 December you could win £5,000!

You can change someone’s life story. Christmas can be a difficult time for people struggling with feelings of loneliness and isolation. Last year our volunteers responded to 6,571 calls on Christmas Day alone, and as the pandemic continues around us, we could see even more calls for help.

It begins with you. It costs £5 to answer a call for help, and every raffle ticket you buy could help us be there for more people this Christmas time.
