  • How does the Lottery Work?

    Membership is open to anyone wishing to support Steamship Shieldhall.

    50% of the income raised will be returned to the members of the scheme as monthly cash prizes. 50% keeps Shieldhall steaming.

    A much better return than any similar commercial  lottery.

    • Subscription shall be £5 per share per month paid by Standing Order.  Multiple subscriptions/shares may be purchased up to a maximum of 10 shares per participant, paid on the same standing order.
    • A prize draw will take place on the first Friday of each month.

    There will be three prizes allocated as follows:

    First prize 25% of previous month’s total subscriptions
    Second prize 15% of previous month’s total subscriptions
    Third prize 10% of previous month’s total subscriptions

    Subscriptions may be started and stopped at any time but we do ask that you commit to a minimum of 12 months of membership in the first instance. Subscriptions must be received no later than the 26th day of the month to be eligible to participate in the following months draw. The draw (and prize money) will be made based on the subscriptions received in to the bank account for that month.

    The more subscriptions, the bigger the prizes!
