make a difference today


for taking the first step towards supporting Woodside Animal Centre, your local RSPCA Branch. We are here to make a difference, and we think you are too. If you already play the Woodside Lottery, thank you so much for your support.

Every week 60% of your £1 goes towards supporting animals in need at Woodside.

Every ticket you buy will go towards saving animals from a life of misery, cruelty and suffering. It ensures that Woodside Animal Centre are ready, 24/7, whenever an animal requires support. Playing provides medical treatment, food, a warm bed and love and attention from our staff before we find them a forever loving home.

It’s A Win-Win Situation When You Play Woodside’s Lottery

Woodside’s lottery is a lottery for the people, by the people. It’s a fun way to help a good cause without giving up precious time. 
Tickets are just £1 in the weekly draw, and more of your money goes towards our work than with any other major lottery – you can see the exact breakdown, where every penny goes, on our website. Unlike larger lotteries, the majority of your ticket purchase comes back into the community AND the odds of winning a prize are much better, at an amazing 50:1. 
It really is a win-win: even if you don’t win a cash prize you can be content in knowing that you are making a real difference! Since its launch, Woodside’s lottery has raised thousands of pounds – so why not join in?

You may be remembering a special person right now, perhaps it’s an anniversary or a birthday, or maybe you’ve sadly lost a loved one recently, and would like to commemorate them in a special and thoughtful way. You can play in their memory, whilst also supporting and helping others.
