It’s a guessing game

Sweepstakes and quizzes are easy to set up and a fantastic opportunity to get your friends, family and colleagues involved!


You can create a sweepstake for just about anything, from predicting your finish time in a race to guessing the winner of Strictly Come Dancing or The Great British Bake Off!

Charity sweepstake rules for success    

 Decide the competition for your sweepstake, for example, guess your race time or the results of a popular event like Wimbledon   

 Use our ready-made sweepstake poster

 Set the price of each entry e.g. £5, ask your family, friends (or colleagues if it’s an office sweepstake) to make a donation for their entry.  

 Whoever guesses correctly wins a prize and the money raised from the entries will be donated to Crohn’s & Colitis UK

*Sweepstake guidelines

Sweepstake competitions can be a fun way to help raise money, but there are some basic rules that you will need to follow if you are planning on running your own 

Entry price - this must be the same for all participants.
Informing your participants - You need to decide before hosting your competition if the entry money will be split between the winner and the charity, or if you are going to have a separate prize with all entry fees going to the charity. Whichever approach you take, participants must be informed before they enter and the host cannot make a profit (ie funds will need to be donated).
Participants in your office sweepstake - must all be employed to work from the same location
You must not sell sweepstake entries on the street or house to house.

For more information on the rules of running your own fundraising sweepstake please visit the Gambling Commission website.

Please note we are unable to accept responsibility for any sweepstake you organise.
