How does the lottery work?

We’ve teamed up with Unity’s national charity lottery scheme. Each entry into our lottery costs just £1 per week, of which 50p is guaranteed to go straight towards our cancer prevention projects. So, while you’ve got to be in it to win it you will also be donating to our great cause!
