As the country faces a devastating cost of living crisis many of us will be grappling with unprecedented pressures on our finances.

With prices massively increasing on everything, from petrol to heating and food, most of us will be looking at ways to cut costs.

While some may have the resources to ride out the storm, others who are already in desperate situations will be forced to make agonising choices between the basic necessities of life.

Charities are suffering

Some of the least well off and the most vulnerable rely on help and advice from charities, but those charities too are facing incredible pressures as costs go through the roof and donations fall.

It is worth remembering the countless charities which are doing fantastic work and which need our help to continue.

Of course many people simply have nothing to give, and in many cases they themselves will need help. But those who can afford to give something can make a real difference by helping the charities to continue their vital work.

One cheap way of doing this – with the chance of a reward – is by signing up to one of the many charity lotteries that are out there.

Here we look at five charity lotteries well worth supporting.

Macmillan Cancer Support

We’ve all heard of Macmillan nurses – and the charity provides emotional and practical support in lots of other ways. Among the help it gives Macmillan offers one-off grants to people on low incomes who are struggling with the extra costs that living with cancer can bring. As more people face pressures from the cost of living the charity has added £3.5 million to its grants.

For £1 per week you could have the chance of winning one of 1,000 cash prizes – including a £1,000 jackpot.

Age UK

Age UK is the leading charity for older people and gives help, information and advice on a whole range of issues affecting the elderly. The Age UK weekly lottery has 1,000 guaranteed winners. Tickets cost £1 and, with no rollovers, one lucky person each week will win a top prize of £2,000. A weekly lottery subscription also gives automatic entry into quarterly superdraws, with a whopping top prize of £25,000.

Parkinson’s UK

The charity works to improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson’s, and it funds research into finding a cure. It has partnered with Unity, the nation’s charity lottery, to offer the chance to win £25,000 for just £1 a week.

Barnardo’s

This charity protects, supports and nurtures the UK’s most vulnerable children. It helps hundreds of thousands of children, young people, parents and carers.

Its weekly lottery costs  £1 to play and gives the chance to win up to £1,000. It also runs a raffle superdraw with a £15,000 first prize.

RSPCA

The RSPCA was founded in 1824 and is the world’s first animal welfare charity. It was originally the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, but added the word Royal in 1840 after gaining patronage from Queen Victoria. In its early days its focus was on working animals such as pit ponies.

A £1 ticket in its lottery could win you £1,000 in its weekly jackpot or one of 100 cash prizes. You could also win up to £10,000 in its quarterly superdraws.
