Staff Lottery

The staff lottery was introduced in September 2005 to raise funds for Cardiff & Vale Health Charity (registered charity number 1056544) for the benefit of both staff and patients. Since then the staff lottery has gone from strength to strength, and now gives staff the chance to win £1,000 on each weekly draw, plus 2 Super Draws every year!

All UHB staff can join the lottery, and for as little as £1 per week you could be £1,000 richer. And don’t forget that our very own charitable projects benefit too. Every penny in profit goes to our charitable funds and your own area could benefit.

In order to comply with Audit recommendations, the weekly Lottery draw is undertaken on the last Friday of each month. The four or five lucky winners will be notified.

The Health Charity runs the Staff Lottery for Cardiff and Vale UHB raising lots of money for the benefit of patients, visitors and staff.

Each month four or five lucky employees wins a fantastic £1000!!!

If you would like to join the staff lottery please contact the Health Charity Office on 029 2183 6052.

Following September’s Staff Lottery SuperDraw, Cardiff & Vale Health Charity visited Tracey Kinsella, the lucky winner of the £5,000 SuperDraw so that she could help pull the Staff Lottery Draws for October.

Taking place in the Clinical Simulation Suite within the University Dental Hospital Tracey, pictured, thoroughly enjoyed pulling the October Draws with her colleagues watching on and reiterated her gratitude to the Health Charity for her big win. The Health Charity were also more than happy to present Tracey, with one of the new Staff Lottery Winners Badges, which she now happily wears with pride.

With the conclusion of this year’s SuperDraw, attention naturally turns to the next big event, the Staff Lottery MegaDraw! The MegaDraw will take place on Friday 31st January 2020 and will see one lucky lottery member win £10,000 as well as 5 x £1,000 winners.
