Laura's winning feeling

I play the Cancer Research UK Weekly Lottery as my dad died of cancer so the cause is close to my heart... but I didn't expect to win. I was surprised when the letter arrived telling me I'd won £250! I used the prize money to treat my friends to a nice dinner.

How your support helps

As well as having the chance to win a great cash prize, when you become a weekly lottery player you’ll be helping to fund life-saving research to prevent, control and cure all types of cancer.

If we keep up the pace of our progress, we believe 3 in 4 people will survive a cancer diagnosis by 2034. Help us make it happen by playing the Cancer Research UK Weekly Lottery today.

In 2021 we raised £5.4 million from the sale of entries to our Weekly Lottery. 44% of these proceeds were used to help support our vital work. We used 51% to run and administer our Weekly Lottery and 5% to pay prizes.

Together we will beat cancer
