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!!!

For information on how to take part, how it works, how to apply for funds and examples of previous grants, please download a copy of our leaflet.

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

All entrants to the staff lottery must be 18 years of age or older.
