We are now four draws in to the West Lindsey Lottery. Playing the lottery gives you a chance of winning up to £25,000 but the Good Causes are the real winners.
Sturton by Stow Village Hall are selling 30 tickets per week, which means they have a projected annual income of £780 from the lottery. We caught up with Mel Banham and asked him about the lottery:
How did you hear about the Lottery?
Sturton by Stow Village Hall heard about the lottery through an excellent presentation evening arranged by the Lottery Team. We were very excited by the prospect of offering the opportunity for people to win cash prizes while supporting our Hall.
Why did you sign up?
Our Village Hall signed up because we can offer people something a little different. They have an opportunity to win prizes, there is no risk of our Hall losing money and we raise funds to keep the hall running. Its win-win all round.
How do you encourage your members or community to play?
Our management committee members talk to friends and family, we have posters up in the Hall and we use our community Facebook pages. We want as many people as possible to get behind this lottery as it's great for all sorts of good causes.
What’s the best thing about the Lottery?
It's a bit of fun, it doesn't cost a lot to play and gambling issues are minimal. COVID-19 has severely affected the use of our Village Hall so having 50% of a weekly draw is really valuable. It helps us pay the hidden bills like insurance so that we can open the Hall again as soon as restrictions are lifted.
