Play the community lottery from 25 July

Tickets for Gosport's new community lottery are on sale from Wednesday [25 July].

As well as being in with a chance of a prize, players will be helping to fund local good causes.

From a £1 ticket, 60p will go to local charities and voluntary groups, and 20p will go to the prize fund. The rest will pay running costs.

Around 30 local groups have already signed up to receive funds.

Players have a 50-to-one chance of winning one of the prizes, which range from a £25,000 jackpot to three extra tickets.

The leader of Gosport Borough Council, Cllr Mark Hook, said: "I'd encourage everyone to buy a ticket and support local good causes. The more the merrier."

The Gosport Community Lottery is being run on behalf of the council by Gosport Voluntary Action (GVA) and an experienced lottery operator, Gatherwell.

Other areas, including Portsmouth, have set up lotteries, which help support local groups at a time of financial pressure for councils.

The first draw is planned for 8 September.

To find out more, or to sign up a voluntary group, go to www.gosportcommunitylottery.co.uk or call 023 9319 0222.
