Community groups, charities and good causes across the city are set to benefit from the launch of the Exeter Community Lottery.

Groups of all shapes and sizes have begun signing up to get a slice of the ticket proceeds when the lottery begins later this summer. More than 50 good causes took part in an online launch of the lottery, which has been initiated by the City Council.

Exeter Community Lottery is a new fundraising initiative and a great way for people to support good causes while having fun and getting the chance to win cash prizes, including a weekly top prize of £25,000.

A guaranteed 60 per cent of the ticket proceeds from the Exeter Community Lottery will go to charities, voluntary organisations, community interest companies and other not-for-profit groups, with the remainder being put towards prizes and operating costs.

Cllr Martin Pearce, Lead Councillor for Communities, said: “The money raised by the Exeter Community Lottery is going to make a lot of difference to grassroots good causes. I would encourage all charities and community groups to sign up and start fundraising with our lottery.

“Councils around the country have found that launching community lotteries is a great way of raising funds for good causes, who do so much great work in our communities, and I know it will be a big success in Exeter.”
