TICKETS are now on sale for the Broxtowe Lotto, a new local lottery scheme to help support good causes in Broxtowe Borough.
Tickets cost £1 each, with 60p from each ticket going towards local good causes and can be purchased at the Broxtowe Lotto Website (Opens in a New Window) or by calling 0115 727 0402. There are weekly draws with a chance of winning a jackpot of £25,000, as well as prizes of £2,000, £250, £25 or three free tickets.
“The Broxtowe Lotto works by allowing people from across the world to buy tickets to support a good cause of their choice from those registered with the lotto. That cause will get 50p of every £1 ticket sold. A further 10p will go into a general good causes fund which will be allocated by the Council. The remaining 40p goes towards prizes and operating costs,” explained Leader of the Council, Councillor Richard Jackson.
“As pressures on budgets continue to increase, we need to support our local charitable and voluntary groups to become more self-sufficient. The ethos of the Broxtowe Lotto is all about community – the community raising money to invest back in to our Borough. Anyone in the world can play, which will help local causes raise their profile and gain new supporters,” he added.
Any Broxtowe-based organisations who are interested in signing up should visit the Broxtowe Lotto Website (Opens in a New Window) for more information.
