While our planned Fundraising events and our charity shops are affected affected during this difficult time meaning reduced essential income, the continued support of those who play our weekly lottery is even more vital than before. Thank you for ensuring that Compton Care continues to step up in the community during the Covid-19 crisis.

Our lottery team are working really hard to ensure all payments are processed and the draw goes ahead every Friday. In line with our Terms & Conditions, should there be any changes to the day drawn the draw will still go ahead before the next draw.

If you normally pay your lottery through the bank by standing order or direct debit: Your payments should not be affected and you will be entered into the draws as they are held – thank you.

If you normally pay by cheque or card: We will be writing to you as usual, letting you know that your lottery renewal is coming up.

If you normally pay by cash: Following the latest Government advice about Covid-19 given on 18 March 2020, we have taken the difficult decision from Sunday 22 March to suspend the activity of collectors visiting players houses to collect play funds. There are about 2,300 players that will be affected, we apologise sincerely for any inconvenience that this may cause and hope you understand that this decision is based on government advice and safety is paramount.

We have written to every house player and are trying to telephone where we can, letting you know why you won’t be seeing your regular collector and if you are still able to support Compton with these vital funds by playing the lottery we can offer you some alternate means of playing during the next few weeks such as calling us and paying by debit card or sending a cheque. Thank you so much if you are able to.

You can email lottery@comptoncare.org.uk or call 0300 3230250 with any enquiries and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
