Calling All Wealden District Good Causes!
10 February 2023
Wealden Community Lottery is being launched to help local not-for-profit and charity groups raise funds online whilst being able to offer a great prize structure to their supporters. It's FREE and EASY to register your Good Cause on Wealden Community Lottery. As a local Good Cause, once you sign up and are approved, you'll get:
- The ability to ask your supporters to ‘give’ with a chance to win up to £25,000 weekly, plus bonus prizes!
- Regular monthly income for your good cause
- Your own Good Cause webpage to fundraise via lottery tickets
- A suite of marketing materials you can use to advertise your Good Cause
Over 25 good causes have already signed up to benefit from the new Wealden Community Lottery. A Good Cause Launch event was held on the 1st of February 2023 in Wealden to give good causes a first look at how the lottery will work, as well as giving them a chance to sign up and start fundraising with the lottery. The event was a great success, with 28 causes already signed up. Organisations ranging from sports clubs to pre-schools have taken up the offer to give their fundraising a boost.
Causes will receive 50p from every £1 ticket they sell, with a further 10p going into a Central Fund for the council to distribute. Any not-for-profit organisation that is interested can sign up below.
With so many good causes signed up, it will soon be time for the lottery to open to ticket sales. Ticket sales for the lottery will be launched on 21st of February 2023. Players will have the chance to win cash prizes of up to £25,000, whilst supporting the good cause of their choice. It’s a win-win situation! The first draw for Wealden Community Lottery will be taking place on the 25th of March.
