Daily Bread Consultancy recently undertook a creative exercise with Solent Students’ Union to help them develop their income generation streams. A lot of ideas were explored including a charity lottery which the trustees decided they wanted to pursue.

Our consultants have significant experience managing charity lotteries and have held gambling commission licences for this purpose. We worked with Unity Lottery to set up a lottery for the Solent Students’ Union, developed landing pages for online sign up and another page for lottery results. This page not only displayed the most recent results for the Solent SU charity lottery but also for the national lottery, the Irish lottery, the Euro lottery, and a number of others.

The purpose of this was to have a “one stop shop” where lottery players could find all of their results and to encourage cross promotion. The idea being that people who enjoy playing lotteries might also want to play and support the SU charity lottery.

Playing the SU Charity Lottery 

Playing the Solent Students’ Union lottery is an easy way to support the students whilst being in with the chance to win a fantastic £25,000 every week.

We believe that supporting the students is good for us all. By playing the SU lottery from just £1 per week you will be helping to provide student services which offer representation, advice and assistance to students as well as social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities.

Supporting young people to develop and grow aids them in their journey to become key members of our society; our architects, psychologists, engineers and business managers.     

Services such as the Night Bus, Student Advice service and the provision of Societies are all funded by the SU in order to keep the students safe and improve their University experience.

For as little as £1 per week, that’s £4.34 per month, you can help us to continue to provide these important services.

£1 per week – Could fund the Night Bus for a night of safe travel around the city*

£2 per week – Could fund a day’s worth of student support from our student advice service*

£3 per week – Could fund half a week of society activities and support providing access to all of your favourite interests and hobbies*

*Figures based on a year’s worth of play

How does the SU charity lottery work?

For just £1 per week you will be allocated with a six digit Unity Lottery number, which will remain yours for as long as you wish to keep playing. You can purchase more than one number if you wish.

Every Saturday, the lucky winners are selected at random and prize cheques issued and posted directly to you, so there is no need for you to claim. You must be 18 or over to enter. Winners have to match 3, 4 5 or all 6 digits of the winning number in the correct place in the sequence.

    • 6 digits in the correct place wins £25,000

    • 5 digits in the correct place wins £1,000

    • 4 digits in the correct place wins £25

    • 3 digits in the correct place wins 5 entries into the next draw

Winning ticket example:

956721 Winning Number

976731 Your Lottery Ticket

This ticket matched 4 digits in the correct place in the sequence and won £25
