Play the Crackerjackpot lottery and help support Sight Life – A chance to win, a chance to care.

27 June 2023


Sight Life is delighted to announce that it has signed up to the Crackerjackpot lottery and has a dedicated website to allow easy access for players.

Join the Crackerjackpot lottery and for just £1 a play, you will be in with a chance of winning our weekly top prize of £2,000. We also have a rollover prize which can reach £12,000.

All funds raised by Crackerjackpot in support of Sight Life go directly to charity. So, your £1 will help support people with sight loss in South Wales.

Sight Life’s services help blind and partially sighted people to enjoy independent and fulfilled lives, maintain, or improve their physical and emotional well-being and provide advice and support.


Richard Harvey, CEO of Sight Life said “Sight Life are delighted to sign up to Crackerjackpot’s lottery. This provides people with both an opportunity to win some fantastic prizes and to support Sight Life’s fundraising efforts at the same time. Sight Life does not charge for its services but relies on fundraising and donations for the majority of its income. Adding this fantastic, well established, and responsible lottery to our fundraising portfolio is a very welcome move.”


Matt Bolger, Head of Lottery and Gaming at Crackerjackpot said:

“We’re delighted to be partnered with such a long established and loved Welsh charity. At the moment, it’s really important for local good causes to work together. Lotteries are a great way to do that. This partnership will help maximise donations to the most out of every penny and add the ‘fun’ into fundraising!”

About Sight Life 

Sight Life (formerly Cardiff Institute for the Blind) supports people who are blind or partially sighted in south Wales. In 2020/21 we helped more than 3,000 people in Cardiff, Swansea, RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taf), Neath and Port Talbot.

We provide statutory services to people with sight loss on behalf of the local Councils in Cardiff and Swansea.

In cooperation with the NHS, we provide a support service (ECLO: Eye Clinic Liaison Officer) for patients newly diagnosed with sight loss in University Hospital of Wales (UHW “The Heath”) in Cardiff.

Our aims are to ensure that people with sight loss can take part in all aspects of society, including work and leisure.

We offer a range of training, clubs and activities including audio-described theatre trips, confidence building, cooking, drama, employment support, fitness, gardening, IT, music, photography, rambling and yoga to people with sight loss.

Established in 1865, we are one of Wales’ oldest charities. In spring 2022 we returned to being an independent charity after being part of the UK wide RNIB Group since 2009.

We have approximately a dozen staff and annual income in the region of £440,000 from statutory contracts, grants, trusts, The National Lottery, donations and legacies.

Sight Life changed its name from Cardiff Institute for the Blind in 2019 to reflect the fact that we work beyond Cardiff, including Swansea and RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taf). The name change also recognises the fact that we support people with any degree of sight loss, not only those who are blind.
