Somerset West Lottery Christmas bonus draw
24 November 2020 : Community, Council news
SWT is inviting people to support local good causes this festive season and be in with a chance to win a great prize in the Somerset West Lottery.
Everyone who signs up to purchase one or more tickets before 19 December 2020 will be in with the chance to win one of five bundles containing an Amazon Echo Show 8, Echo Dot 3rd Gen and a Fire 7 Tablet courtesy of the external lottery management company Gatherwell.
All tickets bought during this timeframe will automatically be entered in to the Christmas bonus prize draw as well as being in with a chance to win up to £25,000 in the weekly lottery run by Somerset West and Taunton council.
Five players were drawn at random to win £100 B&Q gift cards in the summer prize draw where a Somerset West Lottery player supporting Taunton Town FC also won £2,000.
Cllr Chris Booth, Executive Member for Community, said: "As well as offering some fabulous prizes, the local lottery makes it easier for us all to support charities, the voluntary sector and not-for-profit organisations in the SWT area, and gives organisations the opportunity to promote themselves through ticket sales.
“These Christmas bonus prizes are a great incentive to enter whether you’re a regular participant or are new to the Somerset West Lottery. I would encourage everyone who can to buy tickets and help to spread some festive cheer to our local voluntary and communities groups during this very different festive season.”
The Somerset West Lottery offers registered good causes the opportunity to raise income for their organisation by selling tickets to members of the public.
It gives 50p from every £1 ticket sold to local registered good causes with 10p from every ticket sale going into a community grant fund for which local good causes can apply.
