Christmas cheer for local lottery 30 October 2017

Everyone who buys a Somerset West Lottery ticket, which includes the first draw in December, will automatically be entered into a bolt-on draw with the prize of a Marks & Spencer’s Christmas Classic Hamper (valued at £75). 

This hamper will include delicious family favourites such as Christmas pudding, conserve, chutney, punch, Christmas cake and lots of other festive goodies in a beautiful wicker basket.  This additional prize has been kindly sponsored by Warren Bay Holiday Village:  http://www.warrenbayholidayvillage.co.uk/

The Lottery – a joint enterprise was launched by Taunton Deane Borough and West Somerset Councils earlier this year to help provide funding for local good causes.

So far, a total of 83 local good causes have registered with new groups welcomed each month. The number of supporters has risen to more than 750.

It costs £1 per game to play and winners could win up to £25,000 as part of the weekly draw. Each week, the winning numbers are published on the Somerset West Lottery home page:  https://www.somersetwestlottery.co.uk/ 

Players have a 50 to one chance of winning one of the prizes. From each £1 ticket, 60p goes to local good causes, 20% goes to the prize fund, and the balance meets running costs and VAT.

The lottery management company, Gatherwell, has been appointed to run the scheme.
