Local good causes are continuing to benefit from the Somerset West Lottery – a joint enterprise launched by Taunton Deane Borough and West Somerset Councils.
Last month - September 2017 - Somerset West Lottery payments to good causes in the two districts for £3,728.40 have just been approved. This is an increase of £612.90 to local good causes on the August payment.
Trident Youth & Community Centre and Taunton Town Football Club continue to top the ticket sales and will receive payments of more than £100 each this month.
Watchet Bowling Club, Compass Disability Services and Home Start West Somerset are well on their way to 200 ticket sales.
So far, a total of 83 local good causes have registered with seven welcomed this month alone. 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.
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.
