Goole & District Lottery has announced that a staggering 432 winners have received a lucky win with their numbers since it founded in 2008, which means a whopping £432,000 has been won in the local area by its members.
20% percentage of the funds made are used to provide grants of up to £250 to local community groups. These grants are available to voluntary and non-profit making groups, and since its inception have provided help to around 100 local organisations and charities, with around £28,000 been given between 2010-2016.
Lottery members have a chance of winning the £1,000 weekly jackpot prize from just £1 per week, with some scooping the cheque not just once, but twice or even three times!
At its peak the lottery had around 2,000 members but numbers have recently dwindled, which although bad news for the charitable aspect of the scheme does mean that the odds of winning are much higher than ever before. However if numbers continue to drop this could see the Goole & District Lottery having to close its doors for good.
Anyone with a UK postcode can play and previous players can simply reinstate their standing order and be placed straight back into the draws. Entry is £1 each week. Payment can be made by cheque, cash or standing order.
