LotterySK stays strong during virus crisis

Ticket sales for LotterySK are holding up well during the COVID-19 crisis, with several significant winners in recent weeks.

Five lucky ticket-holders each scooped a £250 cash windfall in South Kesteven District Council's community lottery between 4 April and 9 May.

Three were supporters of Dementia Support South Lincs, and the others had bought weekly draw tickets to help fund Ropsley Village Hall and Three Counties Dog Rescue.

LotterySK remains on course to deliver £67,000 to local good causes in the current year, and organisers and supporters of its 108 good causes have been thanked by Cllr Annie Mason, SKDC Cabinet Member for Communities.

She said: "In difficult times like these fund-raising for the many different community groups and good causes across the district becomes even more important. Lockdown has clearly not stopped the good work.

"We are extremely lucky in South Kesteven to have such a strong network of not only volunteers to run vital groups and charities, but also loyal supporters who keep buying tickets to provide all-important funding."

Registering to start fund-raising a good cause with LotterySK is simple, and there is a double bonus for anyone buying a ticket. Not only are they helping their favourite good cause but every week they stand a chance of winning cash prizes.

60% of every weekly £1 lottery ticket goes to support good causes in South Kesteven. Every ticket has a one in 50 chance of winning and there is a top prize of £25,000. The 27 June draw also offers the chance to win fruit and vegetable deliveries for a year.
