Newark and Sherwood Community Lottery is a lottery for the people, by the people. It’s a fun way for you 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 the lottery website here:

With the Community Lottery’s new Super Draw, you can also buy extra tickets to “top-up” for Super Draw week – of if you don’t want weekly tickets, you can buy tickets just for the Super Draw!

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 an amazing 50:1. It really is a win-win: even if you don’t win a cash prize you can be content in knowing that you are making a real difference!

Since its launch the Newark and Sherwood Community Lottery has raised thousands of pounds for small charities – so why not join in? Visit our website to see which good causes you can support, and buy a ticket today:

Councillor Paul Taylor, Portfolio Holder for Public Protection and Community Relations at Newark and Sherwood District Council said: “If you haven’t signed up to the Newark and Sherwood Community Lottery, I really recommend you do. It’s a fantastic, and easy way, to help support our great local causes. Tickets cost £1 per week and 60p is guaranteed to go to the cause you choose to support. Plus, you could be in with a chance to win something nice for yourself and win this amazing national prize.”
