Feeling lucky? Play the NRAS Lottery!

A winning opportunity to support those living with RA & JIA.


The NRAS Lottery

You can play the NRAS Lottery for as little as £1 a week, and of that 50p goes directly to improving the lives of those with RA. Of the remaining 50p, a small amount goes to support Unity’s running costs, and the rest contributes to the lottery prize fund. 

How it works

For just £1 per week, you’ll be allocated with a six-digit lottery number, which remains yours for as long as you wish to keep playing.

Every Friday, the lucky winners are selected by a Random Number Generator. If you match three, four, five or six digits in the correct place in the sequence, you could win up to £25,000!

Prize cheques are issued and posted directly to you, so there is no need for you to claim.  You must be 18 or over to enter. 

How to Play

To enter the NRAS Lottery, register online or download the postal form via our page on the Unity Lottery website or call Unity direct on 0370 050 9240. NRAS has partnered with Sterling Management Ltd to run the NRAS Lottery, under the Unity brand, which enable us to still offer big prizes and save on administration costs. 

If you prefer, you can call NRAS on 01628 823 524 (option 2 ) and we can send you a Lottery form in the post.

Quotes from some of our £1,000 winners

“We spent the cheque many times over in our heads but have decided to put it towards a 14-night cruise from Southampton to The Baltics as we would love to see Russia. I would urge everybody to join the NRAS lottery as I pay by Direct Debit, so no hassle and the money goes towards [helping] people who suffer from this awful condition.”
“I started playing the NRAS lottery after my Mum died in 2011. We had a collection for NRAS (and British Lung Foundation) at her funeral, and after that, I wanted to continue helping NRAS in a small way financially. I am taking my husband, sister and her partner out for lunch this Sunday, but haven’t decided how to spend the rest. I’ll probably put it towards the cost of our upcoming holiday at Lake Garda!”
“WOW this could not have come at a better time as my partner, and I are going through IVF so what a wonderful help this money will be. I shall keep playing the Unity Lottery. Love and support to all my fellow RA sufferers.”
