Our Charity Lottery anniversary
The Pancreatic Cancer UK Weekly Charity Lottery is turning one today! And what a year it’s been.
Every £1 ticket that you’ve bought for our Weekly Charity Lottery has meant that we can fund vital world-leading research to find that breakthrough in new treatments and further improve the speed of diagnosis. And it means our nurses can be there for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer.
Our Charity Lottery
By taking part in our Weekly Charity Lottery, not only have you had the chance to win big cash prizes, but you have also been helping to transform the future of pancreatic cancer.
Here’s what we’ve achieved together this year:
- £50,000 has been raised so far! This could fund nine months of research for one of our Research Innovation Fund projects. Or 38 days of our Specialist Nurse Support Line.
- We’ve had 2598 of you register to play.
- We’ve had an incredible 855 winners!
We wanted to say a massive thank you to every single one of you who might have bought a ticket or shared the news about our Weekly Charity Lottery. We couldn’t have done this without you.
But there is still vital research needing to be done, calls from people living with pancreatic cancer needing to be answered, and top cash prizes still to be won. So, if this inspires you to sign up, you can do so here: Pancreatic Cancer UK Weekly Lottery.

The prizes for our Weekly Lottery are covered by the Unity prize pot. Different charities run their lottery with Unity, and every supporter that buys a ticket contributes to the prize pot by entering. The prizes are not funded by donations that come to Pancreatic Cancer UK in any other way.
