Horsham District Community Lottery 4 year anniversary

Horsham District Community Lottery is now four years old. To celebrate it is giving local charities and good causes the chance to win £500 for their organisations.

For new organisations, if you sign up and go live with the lottery by 8th December, you will be entered into the prize draw for your chance to win. Existing lottery organisations will be automatically entered into the draw.

It’s free, quick and easy to register to fundraise through our local lottery. Once your charity has been approved you will get:

  • The ability to ask your supporters to ‘give’ with a chance to win
  • Weekly cash prizes up to £25,000 and monthly Super Draw prizes
  • Your own public Good Cause webpage and private dashboard on the lottery website
  • An ongoing variety of downloadable marketing materials
  • Regular monthly payments

Horsham District Community Lottery was launched in 2019 to help local not-for-profit and charity groups fundraise online. It was launched by the community for the community of Horsham District.

It’s a weekly draw, tickets are £1 each and most supporters play by paying a monthly direct debit from as little as *£4.34 a month (*1 ticket a week paid monthly).

Selling just 50 lottery tickets a week will see you raise £1,300 a year for your good cause, not to mention any donations you could get from lucky winners! There is no limit to how many people can buy tickets to support your charity either, so the sky really is the limit.

For every £1 donated:

  • 50% goes to the good cause, paid out every month
  • 10% goes to Horsham District Community Lottery Central fund, used to further fund Horsham District Council’s Lottery Good Causes.
  • 20% goes to the prize pot
  • 20% goes to the administration and running costs of the lottery.

Any local not-for-profit or charity organisation can apply. There is no catch, it’s free to use Horsham District Community Lottery to fundraise for your charity.

Register and be live on the lottery by 8 December to be entered into the lottery’s fourth birthday draw. The lucky winner will be announced following the draw.

Horsham District Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Communities and Wellbeing Cllr Sam Raby commented: “I am delighted that our community lottery has reached this major milestone and has been so successful over the four years since it was launched.

“It has been so positively supported by both our local good causes and residents, making such a difference to our communities. Since its launch it has raised over £219,280 which is an amazing achievement for which we are very grateful.

“With the extra incentive to win £500, I would encourage even more groups and players to get involved – it’s free to join, easy to sign up and every group has the potential to raise vital funds for their work.”

All groups involved are also given marketing support to help them reach out to their supporters.
