Slow Food Aylsham has its own lottery page – a new and fun way to raise much needed funds for the group, and a chance for supporters to win £25,000.
Patrick Prekopp, chair of Slow Food Aylsham, said: “Over the past year, along with many other community groups, we have been unable to hold our usual events which help raise funds for the group’s activities including the ever-popular three-day Food Festival in October.
“To help us bridge that gap, we have teamed up with Broadland District Council’s Community at Heart Lottery, a weekly online lottery created to support local good causes across the district.”
The first draw will be on 27 February with a jackpot of £25,000. Other prizes available are for £2,000, £250, and £25.
Tickets cost just £1 a week and with 50 tickets a week we can raise more £1,300 every year.
When supporters buy a ticket, they will be able to choose where they want their money to go – 50 per cent of ticket sales will go to the person’s nominated good cause and 10 per cent will go into a community fund run by Broadland District Council to benefit local good causes. The remaining 40 per cent will go towards the prize money.
Supporters must be 16 or older.
