GFTU Union Lotto


What is Union Lotto?

The Union Lotto was created on behalf of GFTU’s Educational Trust and other Good Causes. It was set up to support the Trust’s work in delivering quality learning opportunities to union activists, affiliated trade unions and partner organisations.

We have a variety of different Good Causes that have signed up totally FREE with Union Lotto for extra fundraising in this time of shrinking budgets.


How Does Union Lotto Work?

One ticket to support a Good Cause with Union Lotto costs £1 a week and 60p goes into the prize fund so that your chosen Good Cause(s) are winners too.

If you match 6 lucky numbers you will win £25,000 and the draws take place every Saturday at 8pm.

Why Support GFTU's Educational Trust?

The GFTU’s Educational Trust does some amazing work; we’ve adapted many of our courses to a hybrid model and now offer a range of on-line and self-guided learning courses while maintaining the delivery of high quality face-to-face learning opportunities.

We pride ourselves on offering thought-provoking learning experiences, conferences and events, undertake research and bring people together to make a difference, as well as host a variety of events for our affiliated trade unions, their officers, activists and members.

Our programmes are wide ranging and designed to offer such things as:

1. Skills development to be a better activist or official.
2. Learning about the history of Trade Unions and the Labour movement.
3. Understanding struggles around the world and what we can do to make a positive difference.
