How your support helps

Thanks for your support

By entering the draw, you’ll help us make a real difference to those who so desperately need a break from the strain in the wake of the crisis. Raffle proceeds will support unforgettable adventures for children with challenging lives, and much-need respite breaks for NHS and key workers.

Where your money goes

  • £50 could pay for a young carer to grow in confidence through a full day of thrilling activities
  • £40 could pay for a night’s stay for a key worker and their partner
  • £15 could help towards the cost of a night away for a child coping with a really difficult home life

See the difference you make

In the heart-warming video below, you can see for yourself the true value of time away for the young carers who joined us for a supported break at YHA Edale earlier in the year.


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.

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.

Each ticket costs £1

The first prize winner will be contacted by telephone and a full list of winners and runners up will be published on our website soon after 11th September 2020.

  • 1st Prize – £3,000 cash, supported by Cotswold Outdoor
