Win up to £1,000 with the new Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charity lottery!

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) Charity is launching its first ever weekly lottery draw to help boost its life-saving work!

Players can win up to £1,000 each week from a prize fund of £1,600 while supporting the work of the YAS Charity.

For £2 per week, participants have a one-in-30 chance of winning one of 30 prizes (compared to a one-in-57 chance with the National Lottery).

The proceeds will:

  • improve cardiac arrest survival rates by providing communities with defibrillators and life-saving cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training
  • support ambulance staff and volunteers in crisis by providing hardship grants for those who may find themselves in difficulty.

Dani Norman, YAS Charity Manager, said: “Anyone can have a cardiac arrest at any time and our work to increase access to defibrillators and CPR training is saving lives in those vital minutes before an ambulance arrives. But we still have so much more to do and by joining our lottery every week you can help us to expand our life-saving work across Yorkshire.

“This is the first time our charity has had a way that our supporters can regularly give and have fun at the same time. By joining the lottery, you will be helping us to secure future funding as well as having the chance of winning some fantastic cash prizes – WIN WIN!”

The lottery is provided by Yorkshire-based Giant Cash Bonanza Lottery Society which supports many causes. However, the money that you spend on your lottery numbers will, after the deduction of prize money and the reasonable expenses of administering it, be donated directly to the YAS Charity. For every £1 you pay into the lottery, the YAS Charity will receive 60p to continue its work supporting the Trust.

You can take part for under £10 a month - £8.67 to be exact. Simply sign up via the YAS Charity website. Thank you, and good luck! We can’t wait to start shouting out about our WINNERS!
