Local lottery raises over £30k in Lincoln

Money was raised for 72 good causes in and around Lincoln

Lincoln Community Lottery players have raised over £30,000 for 72 good causes in and around the city.

The money has been raised since August 2018 including from Lincoln & District Indoor Bowling Club, who is currently the lottery’s top performing good cause.

The club raised more than £2,800 through ticket sales. This will contribute towards a new carpet for the club’s indoor bowling green.

The second highest performing good cause was Lincoln City Radio which raised over £1,400. This was followed by Headway Lincolnshire with more than £1,000 and the Inis Cara School of Irish Dancing, who raised over £900 to date.

Players of the lottery can win a weekly £25,000 jackpot and smaller prizes by purchasing tickets on the lottery’s website. Click here to register as a good cause or buy tickets for the next draw.

Sixty per cent of the price of a ticket goes directly to the lottery’s good causes. Players are able to choose which good cause to donate their proceeds to.

Portfolio Holder for Reducing Inequality at City of Lincoln Council, Councillor Rosanne Kirk, said: “We are very pleased with how far the lottery has come and we have received some great feedback from our good causes and players alike.

“Lincoln Community Lottery is completely free for good causes to join, so we encourage all not-for-profit organisations, charities, clubs and even schools to register and use the lottery to raise some additional funds for their cause.

“Don’t forget, we have some exciting bolt-on prizes coming up – one is a £50 voucher for Doddington Hall which will be drawn on Saturday, June 29 and there will be a number of other great prizes for our year anniversary in August, so watch this space!”
