Newark and Sherwood Community Lottery is a lottery for the people, by the people. It’s a fun way to help good causes without giving up precious time.

Tickets are just £1 in the weekly draw, and you can choose exactly which good cause you would like your money to go to. More of your money goes to your chosen cause than with any other major lottery – you can see the exact breakdown, where every penny goes, on our website.

Tim Wendels, Chair of Homes and Communities Committee at Newark and Sherwood District Council: “Recent months, more than ever, have proven the vital role that charities, voluntary and community groups play in supporting people, communities and shaping places.

“This lottery is a means of enabling charities to raise funds and to develop an income while ensuring financial support for a sector that is closest to our communities and their needs.

“Importantly, we are also ensuring that all proper processes are in place and that this lottery mitigates as many risks of problem gambling as possible.

“Hopefully, this gives people an option that is therefore both secure for them whilst also being dedicated to raising money for good causes.”

Unlike larger lotteries, the majority of your ticket purchase comes back into the community and the odds of winning a prize are much better, at 50:1. Even if you don’t win a cash prize you will still be making a real difference.

Since its launch the Newark and Sherwood Community Lottery has raised thousands of pounds for small charities. Visit the website to see which good causes you can support, and buy a ticket today:
