The Weather Lottery

The Great Weather Lottery LogoYou can help SDR by taking part in the SDR Great Weather Lottery – and you also stand a chance of winning £25,000!

The Weather Lottery is the leading lottery fundraiser in the UK and helps to raise funds for charities, education, sports organisations and other societies. It is managed by Prize Provision Services, a licensed external lottery manager. A percentage of each lottery played is provided to SDR.


The Weather Lottery runs two lotteries:

  • the Sunshine Lottery where players can win up to £25,000 every Monday and 
  • the Lightning Lottery where players can win up to £25,000 every Friday.

How does it work?

You can get a leaflet from our kennels or download the pdf here. You can also go directly to the Weather Lottery site and sign up directly. Choose six numbers from 0 to 9 and enter them in the centre panel inside the leaflet. If your numbers match the last digit of the daily Fahrenheit temperatures (in the right order) of Corfu, Istanbul, Tenerife, Innsbruck, Edinburgh and Stockholm, you can win between £2 and the top prize of £25,000!

How much does it cost?

Each entry line (i.e. each set of 6 numbers) costs £1 per week (20p per day). You pay monthly by standing order.

Where does my money go?

All the money is kept securely in a stakeholder fund, and more than a third comes back to SDR. The remainder is allocated for prize distribution and administration.

How do I know if I've won?

You can check your numbers in the Daily Mail or by calling 0113 275 0002. However, there is no need for you to check them as all prizes are guaranteed and sent out automatically.
