Croydon Voluntary Action is delighted to announce the launch of the Croydon Community Lottery, an exciting new fundraising initiative for good causes www.croydoncommunitylottery.co.uk.
The lottery will be a great way for people to support good causes whilst having fun and getting the chance to win cash prizes!
Leading lottery management company, Gatherwell, has been appointed by Croydon Voluntary Action to run the scheme, having already launched similar lotteries elsewhere.
When the lottery launches in a few weeks, people can purchase tickets online and support the good cause of their choice.
Tickets will cost £1 a week. The draw will be weekly with a jackpot of £25,000, other prizes being £2,000, £250 and £25.
Good causes can register to raise funds with Croydon Community Lottery at https://www.croydoncommunitylottery.co.uk/register/cause?returnUrl=%2Fgood-causes%2Fapply and keep 60% of every ticket they sell. A further 20% of every ticket will go into a Central Fund that will be distributed to more good causes, with the remainder being put towards prizes, operating costs and VAT.
The Chairperson of CVA, Karim Hemani said: “We are looking for new and innovative ways to support Croydon-based organisations to raise much-needed funds”.
