Your Lucky Number

Your lucky number lottery

Your Lucky Number supports the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation. Almost half of the money raised will help to fund Stop Hunger partner charities operating in the UK and the rest will go to employees in the form of three weekly cash prizes.

In 2019 our lottery proceeds were £191,920, and of that, 45% was spent on our good cause work, 43% on prizes, and 12% on expenses.

Currently there are nearly 4,000 members, which means that each member has, each week, a 1 in 4,000 chance of winning one of the prizes (these are stated below).

How much does it cost?

It costs £1 a week to take part in Your Lucky Number.

If you are paid weekly, £1 will be deducted every week directly from your net pay.

If you are paid monthly, £5.34 will be deducted from your net pay in the first month and after that £4.34 will be deducted each month to ensure that there are sufficient funds to cover those months where there are five weeks and therefore there will be five draws before your next pay day

You can only play once a week with Your Lucky Number.

What will happen after I sign up to play?

Firstly you will receive an email which includes Your Lucky Number (your employee number) to confirm that your online form has been received and processed. Once your payment begins, which you will see on your payslip, you will be entered into the weekly draw. It’s that simple.

How will I know if I have won?

The weekly draw takes place each Monday. The winning numbers are selected by a Random Number Generator, managed by an Independent Lottery Management Company on the behalf of the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation.

We will contact you by email to give you the good news and you will receive the prize money directly into your bank account within a couple of days.

Each week the results will be publicised right here on Your_Sodexo.
