Railfuture Lottery

Monthly lottery open to current Railfuture members only

Any member, whether individual, joint or organisation can take part in the Railfuture monthly lottery. However, 'subscribers' and 'supporters' are not members of the company, and therefore cannot take part.

Why not join the Railfuture Lottery - you can help us raise funds and win cash prizes yourself.

Currently, there are six prizes every month, with a top prize of £40. Half of the entry money raised is returned to members in prizes, while the remaining funds are used for campaigning to help us to fight for a rail future. (Profit from the lottery are not used for general administration.)

Each entry costs just £1 per month, and you can have as many entries as you wish.

You can pay via PayPal using the form below, or you can request a Standing Order form or send a cheque, made payable to Railfuture Lottery, to:

Railfuture Lottery, 13 Stories Park, East Linton, East Lothian EH40 3BN.

If paying by PayPal you have two options:

  1. Use 'Buy Now' button - to make a one-off payment for a year's worth of entries (like using a cheque)
  2. Use 'Subscribe' button to set-up a regular payment, which will continue from one year to the next and you must cancel the payment (like a standing order). This optional will also allow you to pay monthly (3+ entries). To cancel a regular PayPal payment see below.

Please read the full Terms & Conditions before entering the Railfuture Members' Lottery.

About Railfuture

Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and all members have an equal say.

Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and freight terminals. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.

Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.

Railfuture is the campaigning name of Railfuture Ltd.

A not-for-profit Company Limited by Guarantee.

Registered in England and Wales No. 05011634.

Registered Office: Edinburgh House, 1-5 Bellevue Road, Clevedon, North Somerset BS21 7NP (for legal correspondence only).
