Play the lottery in support of Blesma - only £1 a week

Blesma, The Limbless Veterans is dedicated to assisting serving and ex-Service men and women who have suffered life-changing limb loss or the loss of use of a limb, an eye or loss of sight. By playing the lottery in support of Blesma you can help them provide support and practical advice to a veteran in need.

It's easy to join & costs just £1 a week. Why not set up a Direct Debit for £4.34 a month, it covers you for all 52 draws a year.


After running costs and the prize fund are taken out, your lottery membership will go directly to support Blesma so they can support limbless veterans - all proceeds stay within the charity sector.

From your very first draw, your membership goes to support Blesma, and by playing regularly, you are really making a difference to them and the services that they provide to the limbless veterans community.

Thanks to you
