Win up to £25,000 and help community groups across the city

Win up to £25,000 and help community groups across the city Exeter Community Lottery

Tickets go on sale for the Exeter Community Lottery on Tuesday (27 June) with a chance to win up to £25,000 and at the same time help community groups across the city raise vital funds.

The first draw for the Exeter Community Lottery takes place on 22 July, leaving people just over three weeks to get their tickets. People have a one in 50 chance of winning a prize.

Already some 48 community groups, organisations and good causes have signed up to the initiative. They will all get a slice of the ticket proceedings once the Lottery gets underway.

When people buy tickets they can choose which cause they would like to support. Sixty pence in every pound then goes to that cause.

And it’s not too late either for groups to sign up and get involved.

A guaranteed 60 per cent of the ticket proceeds will go the good causes, with the remainder being put towards prizes and operating costs.

Cllr Martin Pearce, Lead Councillor with responsibility for Communities, said: “We are almost there. Tickets are about to go on sale and we have an impressive 48 local groups that have signed up to benefit from the Lottery.

“Now it’s down to the people of Exeter to get behind the Community Lottery and help support the community groups, organisations and good causes that make up the heartbeat of this great city.”

People will need to make sure they have a ticket before the first draw is made on 22 July. Draws will then take place on a weekly basis.
