Harrogate now has it's very own Local Lotto.
THE LOCAL LOTTO is a weekly lottery that directly supports local good causes and community initiatives.
Lotteries are a fun and effective way for causes to raise much-needed funds in these difficult times. By getting more people on board, they don’t just raise funds, they also raise awareness.
When you play the THE LOCAL LOTTO you know that 60% of your ticket price goes to good causes (more than DOUBLE what the National Lottery gives) AND the money raised is going to good causes that benefit your local community.
Proceeds generated go into THE LOCAL FUND for the Harrogate District, which will be spent on providing vital support to a wide range of local organisations and community initiatives which have a beneficial impact on the local community. The fund will be administered twice a year through an open application process.
You can either buy a general ticket or choose a ticket which supports a specific local cause. These are listed on the website here.
Tickets are already on sale and cost £1 a week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!
The first draw takes place on 8th September at 8pm. You can find out more and purchase tickets here.
