Tickets for the new Wealden Community Lottery are now on sale, with the first weekly draw taking place on Saturday 25 March.
The local lottery has been set up by Wealden District Council to help local good causes throughout Wealden to raise money.
Tickets are available to buy online at a cost £1 each and winners could scoop up to £25,000. We're one of the local causes you'll be supporting.
To celebrate the launch of Wealden’s Community Lottery, anyone with a ticket in our first draw will automatically be in with a chance of winning an Apple IPad.
Wealden council’s portfolio holder for Community Councillor Pam Doodes said, “We’ve established Wealden Community Lottery as a way for good causes to raise essential funds. “Some 50% of the money raised will go to good causes which have signed up. The rest will go towards the prize money and running costs, and VAT. It’s a fantastic way for people to support a good cause of their choice, whilst also getting the chance to win up to £25,000. I wish everyone the best of luck.”
Over 30 good causes that have already signed up to the lottery including not-for-profit organisations such as charities, sports clubs, residents’ associations, community groups and PTAs.
