You must be 16 or over to enter. YHA’s lottery is run through Unity. Here are their full terms and conditions.

How your support helps

YHA is a charity with a 90-year history of connecting people and places. We improve health, wellbeing and life skills. For all – but especially young people with challenging lives. And we do it through brilliant hostel stays, education residentials, volunteering opportunities and programmes. But we can’t do it alone.

The pandemic has had a severe impact on our finances. By entering the lottery, you’ll be helping YHA through this terribly difficult time. So we can get back to transforming more lives as soon as possible.

A minimum of 50% of the total lottery proceeds goes to supporting the work carried out by YHA, 18.4% on prizes, and 31.6% on expenses and administration of the lottery.
