Community Lottery tickets now on sale

Published on 18 July 2023

Tickets are now on sale for the new High Peak Community Lottery - the exciting fundraising initiative launched by the Borough Council which is set to benefit community groups and organisations across the High Peak.

Almost 40 local groups, ranging from food and baby banks to choirs, community gardens and Friends of Groups and heritage and arts trusts, have already registered and will keep 50% of the money raised from each ticket they sell.

A further 10% from each ticket sold will go to a central fund that will support more good causes with the remainder being put towards prizes and operating costs.

Tickets for the weekly prize draw cost £1 and players are in with a chance of winning the jackpot of £25,000. Prizes of £2,000, £250 and £25 are also available.

The first draw will take place online on Saturday 29 July when an iPad is also being offered as a prize to celebrate the launch of the lottery.

Council Leader, Councillor Anthony Mckeown, said: "With almost 40 great local causes registered for our community lottery we're now at the exciting stage where people can buy tickets and support the good cause, or causes, of their choice  - which is good news for all those that have registered to benefit.

"The High Peak Community Lottery will support groups and organisations across the Borough with much-needed funding to help them continue their fantastic work in our communities.

"If your group isn't one of the almost 40 that have already signed up, there's still room - and time - for plenty more before the first draw! If you think it would help you fundraise for your group, please look at the website and register to join the growing list of organisations the lottery is set to help."

It's open to any eligible not-for-profit group or organisation in the High Peak such as charities, sports clubs, arts groups, schools and PTAs and social enterprises.

You can see which good causes have already signed up, and buy your tickets, on the community lottery website.

Groups and organisations yet to register can contact for help and advice.
