The next draw of Captain Manchester’s Magical Tombola, will take place on Friday 15th December 2023.

This month it’s our Christmas special! For just £5 a ticket you could win our huge prize of £2,000! Plus, there’s the opportunity to win our golden ticket worth £500, drawn on Boxing Day.

With a second draw on Boxing Day, a tombola ticket is the perfect fun addition to someone’s present this year, but did you know that £5 can provide a food pack this Christmas period for young people in low-income families? That’s why Captain Manchester’s Magical tombola benefits more than just our prize winners.

Captain Manchester’s Magical Tombola is one of Forever Manchester’s main fundraising activities, raising money to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester.

The deadline to enter online is 12pm on Thursday 15th December 2023.

The November draw is now closed.


If you wish to be automatically entered into future Tombola draws you can set up a monthly direct debit using the link below. You can choose to have up to six chances per month by selecting the relevant amount. For example, if you choose to have two chances per month, select “£10 (two chances)” and each month we will enter two tickets into the draw for you.

When setting up the direct debit, you will be given a date of your first collection. If the date provided is after the next draw date, and you want to be entered into the next draw, you will have to buy a ‘one-off’ ticket for the next draw. For all future draws, you will be automatically entered into the draw.

If you wish to cancel your direct debit at any time, you can do so via your own bank, but please email us at to let us know.

Once you have set up your direct debit, you will receive a confirmation email for you to check and confirm your details. We will be automatically notified of your direct debit payment.
