Good causes are invited to apply to be part of new Community at Heart Lottery.

01 December 2020

Following a successful virtual launch event at the start of November, local organisations are now invited to apply to take part in the lottery by becoming a listed ‘good cause’. To be considered a good cause and be able to raise funds through our lottery organisations must provide activities or services within Broadland which are of benefit to our residents, have a formal constitution or set of rules, have a bank account requiring at least two unrelated signatories and operate with no due restrictions on membership. The lottery has no-set up costs or admin fees for approved good causes. While there is no deadline for applications, organisatons which sign up and are approved before tickets go on sale in January 2021 will benefit from the maximum amount of coverage to potential supporters for their cause.

Each ticket for the lottery costs £1 with 50% going to the good cause nominated by the ticket buyer, 10% going to a community fund managed by Broadland District Council  and the remaining 40% going towards prize money and running costs. The first tickets will go on sale on 12 January 2021 with the first draw taking place on 27 February 2021. There will be a weekly draw with a jackpot of £25,000 for matching a sequence of six numbers. Other available prizes are £2000, £250, £25 or three free tickets.

To celebrate the first draw, one lucky ticket holder will win a luxury hamper supplied by Blofield Farm Shop.
