A community lottery that will help Breckland-based groups raise much-needed funds will have its first draw this weekend, on Saturday 31 March.
Since the lauch of Breckland Lottery on 1 March, more than 700 tickets have been sold, which directly benefit local ‘good causes’, and Necton’s Little Oaks are part of this exciting initiative.
As part of the purchasing process, players can choose one of the good causes registered with the scheme to receive 50p of every £1 ticket they buy.
In addition, a further 10p of every £1 ticket goes into a general community funding pot, which Breckland will release as grants.
For every £1 ticket sold:
50p will go to local good causes that are signed up to Our Breckland Lottery
10p will go to a general fund, which Breckland Council will distribute locally as grants
20p will go to the lottery prize fund
20p will go towards running costs and VAT
Players have until 23:59 on Friday 30 March to buy tickets and be in with a chance of winning up to £25,000.
In addition, players who take part in the draw this weekend can also win the special lottery launch bolt-on prize of a year-long Parkwood Community Leisure membership, worth £389. This can be used at both Breckland Leisure Centre and Waterworld in Thetford and Dereham Leisure Centre, and includes access to gym, classes and swimming.
Breckland Lottery was created by Breckland Council to provide a free and simple online platform for charities and not-for-profit organisations to raise awareness of their work and sell tickets that directly benefit their cause. By promoting the online lottery to their supporters and members, and engaging their local community, organisations can increase the amount of money they will receive through ticket sales.
Prize draws will be held weekly and tickets are only available to buy online. Visit Our Breckland Lottery to buy tickets and follow @OurBreckland on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with the latest draw results.
