B T Police Federation Lottery

During their time in service many members of NARBTPO would have been members of the Federation Lottery. Now, with the assistance of the Federation, we can now advise that the membership of the lottery is available for you to join.

The cost is £1 per number per week and you can have up to 5 numbers. The draw is held monthly with a bonus draw in December. The first and second prize are always £1000.00 and £500.00 respectively. Third to fifth prizes vary depending on the monthly membership and fluctuate between £50 to £70 per month. The remainder of the money is split between donation applications which must be for a Charity, Sporting or Cultural event. Members wishing to receive a donation for any of those events must make a written application to the BTP Federation.  The winning numbers will be provided to us on a monthly basis and will be published on our website. Application forms to join the Lottery are available on both the NARBTPO website ( along with the BTP Federation website ( .  Two forms are available to be downloaded and printed. The application form should be sent to the Federation Office at the address on the form. The Standing Order form should be sent to your bank or building society. The Federation will advise you of your numbers following confirmation of your payment.


The Lottery has been helpful in assisting the Association with donations for several years and this is your way to help the Lottery grow and succeed as well as hopefully pocketing some winnings yourself.  Should you have any concerns or enquiries regarding this new venture then please contact me by email ( and I will be pleased to assist you.

Now, a century later, the railway industry of Britain and Ireland will come together again in a service at Southwark Cathedral, London, to remember those that fell in the "Great War".
