New Dover District Lotto to fund local good causes

Thursday, 27 December 2018
An exciting new lottery is being launched in the new year - with local good causes the big winners. With good causes receiving 60p in the £1, local charities and community groups in the Dover District are invited to get involved and find out how the lottery can raise funds for them at a Sign Up Event from 6.30 - 8pm on Monday 21 January 2019 at the Astor Theatre in Deal.

Players of the new Dover District Lotto will have the option to specify which participating local good cause they want to support, and this cause will directly receive 50p in every £1 spent. In addition, 10p in every £1 goes to increasing the amount of funding available for the local community through Dover District Council’s annual Community Grants programme. The rest of the money is split between 20p in the £1 for prizes, and 20p in the £1 for running the scheme and VAT.

There is no cost to the participating good causes, and they are provided with their own branded web page and marketing materials. 

Tickets for the lottery will only be available for purchase online by Direct Debit or payment card on a monthly plan, or with a 3, 6 or 12 month one-off payment.  

Cllr MJ Holloway, DDC Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: "We’re delighted to be able to launch the Dover District Lotto. This will provide a real boost for local good causes, providing them with a regular new income stream as part of their fundraising efforts. We hope as many local groups as possible get involved, and come along to the workshop in January."
