It’s almost six months since we launched our fund-raising initiative, and your small change has made a big difference for The Black Dyke Band – and our winners too!

The Giant Cash Bonanza Lottery was created in 2002 to raise funds for various good causes, including the Black Dyke Band.

Although the Giant Cash Bonanza Lottery supports many causes, the money you spend on your Lottery numbers will, after the deduction of money for prizes and the reasonable expenses of administering it, be donated solely for the benefit of the Black Dyke Band – they will end up receiving a minimum of 60% of contributions paid for tickets to directly support them going forward.

For just £2 per week you can support the Giant Cash Bonanza Lottery, support the Black Dyke Band and its inspirational musical work with the young people of the Yorkshire Youth Brass Band.

How it works

Ten unique numbers are entered into the weekly draw and two unique numbers will be entered into the free draws and annual £10,000 jackpot draw.

Your lottery numbers will be entered into the draws together with the lottery numbers of other supporters of the Black Dyke Band and supporters of other beneficiaries. 

Participation fees are as follows:

  • Monthly           £8.67
  • Quarterly        £26.00
  • Half-yearly      £52.00
  • Yearly              £104.00


For just £2 per week, you can help support the Black Dyke Band. What’s more, you will be in with the with the chance to win £1,600 each week. Sign-up with the Giant Cash Bonanza and you will automatically be entered into the Mega Draw at the end of March each year, where you could win £10,000!

As we gradually get back to regular business, our exclusive Black Dyke members monthly prizes will be changing too. Visits to the bandroom and Heritage Centre will be progressively reinstated, along with a range of other attractive prizes.
