About the Staff Lottery

All employees are invited to participate in the monthly Staff Lottery and have the opportunity to win cash prizes and other fantastic prizes.

You can buy from 1 to 10 numbers per month with each number costing £2. Unlike other lotteries you don’t have to remember to buy a ticket for each draw, once you have filled out the application form we will deduct the money from your salary and enter your number in the monthly draw for a chance to win cash prizes and other fantastic prizes. You will receive confirmation of your entry and your unique number(s). If you are part of the Trust's weekly paid bank staff you will be able to set this up via standing order.

Many services have received lottery funds including therapies such as reflexology, podiatry, gym memberships and Staff Benefits Grants.

You can complete a Staff Lottery application form here and in the leaflet dispensers outside the  Staff Shop York and Staff Shop Scarborough or the electronic version is available under Lottery Application Form button.

Bank Staff

Employee's on a bank contract, will need to set up a standing order with their bank to pay for their numbers. The standing order is to be made payable to: 'YORK TEACH HOSP NHS FT' Sort Code 60-70-80 Account Number 10007652. Each number is £2 per month. Please set up standing orders to be paid on the 25th of the month and use reference 'SL/payroll number/name'.

Retiring & Returning

If you are 'Retiring & Returning' your staff assignment number will be cancelled and you will receive a new one when you return to work. This means that your Staff Lottery numbers will also be cancelled, so when you return, please complete a new application form.

Each month £4,955 is given away in cash prizes. Up to 50% of the income from the lottery is paid in prizes. The other 50% is used to enhance the work/life balance for staff.
