In 2017, 91 per cent of all the money raised through RNIB raffles and lotteries was spent on helping people with sight loss. Just nine per cent was spent on prizes and the expenses of running them (these figures are based on the Lottery Submissions, provided to the Gambling Commission).

Why take part?
The tickets you buy or sell in our Autumn Raffle will be used by our new subsidiary, RNIB Direct Services Lottery Limited to fund the vital direct services that RNIB provides for blind or partially sighted people like Emily, who benefited from support during her education.
Starting school can be tough, but for Emily, who was born with septo-optic dysplasia, it was an even bigger challenge. Emily has some vision in her left eye but no sight at all from the right, and the lack of support in her early education left her feeling isolated.
Emily found that her school did very little to make learning accessible. She loved to read but was very frustrated that her school couldn’t provide accessible materials.
“Thank goodness I found out about RNIB. They provided me with school resources and books, and they have been great in helping me get accessible course materials for my degree.”
Emily’s dream for the future is to write childrens books.
“If RNIB hadn’t helped me to access reading, my life and my goals would certainly have been very different.”
By playing our Autumn Raffle, not only are you helping support people with sight loss, you could also be in with the chance of winning our top prize of £10,000, or one of our other super prizes.
