Gedling Lotto - Love Your Community, a good cause celebrates fundraising through the local lotto

Gedling Lotto celebrates its 1st birthday!

01 October 2021

Since its launch in September 2020, the Gedling Lotto has raised almost £20,000 for the local community and more than £6,400 has been given away in winnings. So far, more than 31 local groups have signed up and are raising unlimited, year-round funds. The Lotto is a FREE, fun and effective way for local not-for-profit groups and charities to raise funds for their valued services in the community.

60% of every £1 lottery ticket directly supports the local community, more than double the amount of most other lotteries and supporters can choose the good cause they'd like their funds to go to. 50% of the £1 ticket goes directly to the cause they choose, with a further 10% going to the community fund, which is used to further support local good causes. 

Support A Local Cause

Supporting a local cause through the lottery not only makes a real difference where it matters the most but also has the added fun of a chance of winning a prize in the weekly lottery draw. With chances at cash prizes up to the £25,000 jackpot for just £1 per ticket. Enter before 30th October to also be in with the chance of winning £1,000 in John Lewis Vouchers in the national bonus draw!

 

Gedling Youth & Community Hub has been using the Lotto since it launched in September 2020 and has raised nearly £2,000 from Gedling Lotto ticket sales. The group is working on ambitious plans to convert a former railway station building in Gedling village into a youth centre and community hub.

 

Francis Rodrigues, Chair of the Gedling Youth & Community Hub said:

 

“The money we have raised from the Gedling Lotto has helped us with our monthly running costs to keep our regeneration project going. We sell between 70 – 75 tickets per week and the monthly income we make is a real help. We are very grateful to Gedling Lotto for creating a lottery that is so supportive of local good causes like ours.”

Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke said:

 

“Good causes across Gedling borough have not only benefited from receiving regular funds raised from their ticket sales, but they also received a host of marketing materials as well as their own Gedling Lotto webpage to help them to get started promoting their tickets and it’s all free for them to use.

If you work or volunteer with or support a local not-for-profit group, maybe you’re in a local school’s PTA, a member of a sports club, or support a local charity that is looking for a sustainable way to raise funds, then let them know that Gedling-based good causes can sign up for free to use the Lotto and raise funds, it’s so easy to do, they just visit www.gedlinglotto.co.uk to register.”
