How does the Superdraw work?
Four times a year we will hold a Superdraw where one lucky winner will win the top cash prize of £15,000.

Why do you have such large cash prizes?
We feel these are competitive prizes, which enable us to draw in interest and increase our number of supporters. We run draws like these to spread awareness of the charity and they provide a fun and alternative way for supporters to get involved with our work.

Please be assured that we take care and attention to ensure funds are allocated appropriately. We also regularly review our prize structure to ensure it is affordable. This means that the vital funds raised are spent on providing rehabilitation and training as well as practical and emotional support to more than 6,000 beneficiaries and their families that the charity currently supports.

How much money is spent on blind veterans?
80p of every pound received by Blind Veterans UK goes directly to our work supporting blind and vision-impaired veterans discover a life beyond sight loss.
In addition, for every £1 we spend, we raise £3.95. The money is spent on providing rehabilitation and training as well as practical and emotional support to more than 6,000 beneficiaries and their families that the charity currently supports.

When are the winners notified?
Winners will be notified by post within seven working days of the draw taking place.
A list of winners will also be available on our website. You can find the latest list here.

How do you pay me my winnings?
Payment of prizes will be made by cheque and/or vouchers within 28 days of draw date.
