LotterySK winner collects £2,000 in weekend draw

A lucky LotterySK player has scooped £2,000 in the latest weekly draw.

The successful player, from Grantham, bought their ticket in support of Three Counties Dog Rescue, based in Bourne, which takes in and finds new homes for unwanted, lost and stray dogs.

Other good causes to benefit from South Kesteven District Council's weekly community lottery draw include Mindspace (Stamford), Dementia Support (South Lincs), The Thorold Arms Community Benefit Society and Sunshine Pre-School at Great Gonerby.

The latest group to join the LotterySK scheme are Castle Bytham Village Hall, raising money for maintenance and upkeep; Grantham and District Mencap, which helps its members get the most out of life; and Grantham Life Saving Club, which teaches people safety skills when in and around water.

There are now 108 good causes receiving money directly from LotterySK, which is set to raise over £67,000 for the community this year.

Sixty per cent of every weekly £1 lottery ticket goes either to a nominated cause or into the council-backed Community Fund.  Every ticket has a one in 50 chance of winning - and there is a top prize of £25,000.

LotterySK was launched in 2018 by SKDC to support deserving groups, and it is ticket sales that keep the proceeds flowing to help the good causes.

It is open to all not-for-profit organisations, charities, clubs and school parent teacher associations.
