Our summer raffle has closed.
How your support helps
The children and families we’re fundraising for have had to deal with more than most through the pandemic.
Young carers who have been cut off from school, services and social interaction. Key workers who’ve kept us all going, despite the dangers. And families struggling to cover the basics on dwindling incomes.
could help towards the cost of a full-board break for a young carer, giving them two fun-filled days away from their worries and responsibilities
could help pay for a few nights away for a NHS worker and their family, after a year on the front line of the fight against coronavirus
could help a family struggling on a low income to get away and explore an amazing landscape, after so long without access to green space
“Thank you! I feel so grateful that we were given this opportunity. It has made such a difference to us all and made me feel so positive!”
“It was amazing to get away with my daughters. I’m a single mum to a severely disabled 15-year-old and a two-year-old child. We shielded for the majority of the first lockdown so it meant a lot for us to get away as a family where normally we wouldn’t be able to due to finances. Thank you so much!”

What is the YHA raffle?
We run a raffle draw twice a year, once in the summer and again in winter. Each ticket gives you a chance of winning one of our fantastic prizes.
Why is YHA running raffles?
The coronavirus crisis is having a huge impact on YHA’s income and ability to deliver its mission in 2020 and beyond. Charity raffles are well established as a way for causes to raise money. Proceeds from this raffle will go towards YHA, to support the charity’s work with young people and families coping with challenges. Challenges that mean that, without YHA, they are simply unable to access travel and adventure – and all the benefits these bring to health, wellbeing and the development of skills for life.
How much are the tickets?
Each ticket costs £1.
How will I know if I’ve won?
The first three prize winners will be contacted by telephone and runners up will be published on our website soon after 10th September 2021.
What prizes can I win?
You could win one of the following:
- 1st prize: £3,000
- 2nd prize: £1,000 cash
- 3rd prize: £250 cash
- 10 x £50 YHA vouchers
- 10 x £20 YHA vouchers
- 10 x £10 YHA vouchers
How do I enter?

How old do I have to be to enter?
The law states that tickets must not be sold to, or by, those under the age of 16. In accordance with our license we must abide by this law.
What is responsible gambling?
Responsible gambling means staying in control of how much time and money we spend on gambling. Responsible gambling means not spending more money or time than we can reasonably afford on gambling activities, keeping in mind all our other responsibilities in life.
