Following on from the success of previous national initiatives, the Somerset West Lottery is taking part in the summer 2020 bolt-on prize draw.
Everyone who signs up to purchase one or more tickets between now and 29 August will be in with the chance to win one of five B&Q gift cards to the value of £100 curtesy of the external lottery management company Gatherwell.
All tickets bought during this timeframe will automatically be entered in to the 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.
A further bolt on prize draws is planned for winter 2020 with details to be announced.
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.
Cllr Chris Booth, SWT’s Executive Member for Community, said: “The local lottery makes it easy 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. I hope this bonus draw with a chance to win these great prizes will encourage more people to buy tickets and help our local communities. I would also encourage as many good causes and local charities as possible to sign up to receive financial support from the Somerset West Lottery.”
