£10,000 to be dished out for Lincoln Community Lottery’s 1st birthday!

09 August 2019

Lincoln Community Lottery celebrates its first birthday this weekend, and as a thank you to our players and good causes, we’re giving you the chance to vote on where you think we should allocate the £10,000 raised through the lottery’s Community Fund to.

The Community Fund has been raised by players who have directly selected this as their good cause when purchasing tickets, meaning that 60 pence of every ticket sold through this selection goes directly towards the Community Fund.

Players who have selected to support a specific good cause have also donated 10 pence of each ticket to the Community Fund, meaning that every player of Lincoln Community Lottery has contributed to the £10,000 up for grabs.

Graham Rose, Project Manager for Lincoln Community Lottery, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating Lincoln Community Lottery’s birthday and it’s fantastic to see how far we’ve come since we launched last August!

“Our players have raised more than £40,000 for good causes in and around Lincoln, and that in itself is a huge accomplishment for our community.

“However, we wanted to go that step further and give everyone the chance to vote on which areas receive the additional £10,000 up for grabs – so make sure to cast your vote.

“You also have until 11.59pm today (Friday 9 August) to buy your tickets for our special prize draw where you will have the chance to win a TV plus other fantastic prizes, so don’t miss out!

“Finally, a big thank you to our players and good causes for your support in helping to raise this outstanding amount in just one year – we couldn’t have done it without you.”

The closing date for voting is noon on Friday 30 August 2019.
