Join Our Lottery

We have joined with Donr to create a fun way of raising money for the shelter, as well as giving you the opportunity to win!

Play our lottery for just £2 per week and you can help us to keep our animals warm and fed. Our energy costs have increased at an alarming rate and we need your help.

By playing our lottery for just £2 per week you will be helping us to give these animals the love and care they need. You will also be in with a chance of winning £10,000 each week.

By selecting the button below, you will be taken to our ‘Donr’ page where you can sign up for the lottery as well as finding more information on how it works. Although we set the lottery up, it is run by a third party so we won’t be able to help with any technical support as our attention is focused on the animals. If you run into any difficulties please direct any queries to or call: 0333 4444 111

St Francis Animal Welfare receives no government funding and we rely totally on donations and by hard work fundraising.
We gladly welcome any donations of pet food/treats, bedding, blankets, towels, toys, scratching posts etc for the use of our rescue animals as well as bric-a-brac, books, new items, clothing, toys etc for selling at our events – these can be accepted with thanks, any day between 11am-3pm, at the shelter.

We always welcome home-made cakes to sell at any of our events.

We are also always on the lookout for reliable volunteers to assist with feeding and cleaning the animals at the shelter, dog walking and cuddling cats as well as volunteers to assist at our fundraising events or to go to car boot sales on our behalf. Please note all volunteers must now be over the age of 18.
