How are the lottery proceeds used?

In 2020, 18.4% of income received from ticket sales was spent on prizes, 31.6% on expenses, and a minimum of 50% went directly to the work we do supporting seafarers in need and their families.

This may go towards aiding families who’ve lost a loved one at sea or supporting the men and women who work in one of the most vital, yet most challenging and most dangerous industries. Or it might enable us to provide funding for veterans needing physiotherapy. In 2021, we distributed more than £2.9m in grants to expert organisations supporting the well-being and welfare of active and retired seafarers. Learn more about our impact.
