People’s Postcode Lottery is a subscription lottery that raises money for good causes in Great Britain and around the world.

At least 32 per cent of the ticket price goes to charity, and players have so far raised more than £486 million for good causes since 2005.

Sightsavers is a promoting society for the lottery, meaning players are helping to fund our sight-saving work across the world. We are incredibly grateful for this generous support.

For more about how players of People’s Postcode Lottery are helping us change lives worldwide, watch our video below to see broadcaster Fiona Phillips and Sightsavers’ Mike Straney discussing our work and trying our cataract simulator, which shows people what the world would look like if they had cataracts.

How does the lottery work?

Players sign up using their postcode and pay £10 a month for the chance to win daily cash prizes.

Each day a winning postcode is announced. Everyone who plays with the winning postcode receives a prize, with winnings starting from £1,000.
