Since launching the lottery in July to December 2017 we have had:
- Over 460 players sign up
- Over £10,000 raised for good causes
- An estimated £27,000 to be raised annually
Tickets cost just £1 each and about 60% goes back to local good causes, in comparison to just 28% contributed by the National Lottery. The remaining 40% goes back into the prize fund and pays for the running costs.
Players can nominate a specific good cause to benefit in which case 50 pence of their £1 ticket goes to that nominated good cause. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize every week. This includes an incredible £25,000 jackpot prize if all six numbers are matched, as well as various other cash prizes.
Players also have the option of choosing the Hart Community Fund when they buy a ticket. The Councils Cabinet has agreed that money from this fund will be distributed on an annual basis between the Chairman's charities for that year. The charities for 2017/18 which may be eligible for these funds can be viewed at www.hart.gov.uk/chairman-council-2017.
You can buy tickets and support your local good cause at www.hartlottery.co.uk.
The Lottery is free for good causes to join and applications to benefit from the lottery can be made now at www.hartlottery.co.uk.
There are a set of criteria which local good causes must meet to be a part of the Lottery. These can be found here.
