Launch of new Bournemouth community lottery scheme
Posted on Friday 1st February 2019
Tickets are now available for an exciting new weekly lottery which benefits residents of Bournemouth. BH Coastal lottery will be raising money for local charities, voluntary organisations and other good causes in Bournemouth, benefitting the town and its residents. Over 60 good causes have signed up to the lottery to date. Tickets for the lottery will be available to buy online from the BH Coastal Lottery website. The first draw will take place on Saturday 2 March.
All supporters will get the chance to win prizes of up to £25,000 for just £1 per week. Every ticket has a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize, giving supporters better odds on winning than the National Lottery and the Health Lottery.
In addition to the monetary prizes, supporters will have the chance to win a break at the exclusive Bournemouth Beach Lodges.
60p from every £1 ticket will go directly to local charities and good causes, with the remainder being put towards prizes, operating costs and VAT.
Sixty three local good causes have registered to benefit from the lottery and more are being encouraged to sign up. Players can choose which good cause will benefit from 50p of their £1, while 10p will go to a central Community Fund.
Councillor Cllr Jane Kelly, Cabinet Member for Regeneration said: “We are pleased to be launching the BH Coastal Lottery which will help good causes in Bournemouth raise much needed funds. The BH Coastal Lottery will attract supporters who are looking to help our local causes with the incentive of winning prizes, including the jackpot of £25,000.”
