Over fifty local good causes have now signed up to the Elmbridge Community Lottery. Tickets went on sale on 28 February, with the first draw taking place on 28 March. There is a chance to win £25,000 as well as support local good causes.
How does it work?
Tickets will cost £1 with 60p going towards local good causes, compared to just 28p in the pound for the national lottery. The draw will be weekly with a jackpot of £25,000 for a matching sequence of six numbers, other prizes being £2,000, £250, £25 or three free tickets.
There are two parts to the Elmbridge Community Lottery. Elmbridge good causes will be able to set up their own lottery page and will receive 50p in every pound spent by players using this method. A further 10p in every pound will go into a general Elmbridge Community Lottery good causes fund, with the remainder being put towards prizes, operating costs and VAT.
Players who do not wish to support a specific cause can still take part in the Elmbridge Community Lottery, with 60p of their ticket price going into the general good causes fund, which will be distributed by the council.
