The Essex Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Essex. It's been set up by Essex County Council based on the principle of raising money within the community for the community.
60p from every £1 ticket sale will go directly to good causes within communities across Essex – more than double the National Lottery.
There is zero cost to the charities, projects and groups who choose to take part. The County Council itself does not take a penny from the initiative.
Lottery tickets will be available to buy from midday on 10 October at essexlottery.co.uk. Players will be able to select the cause they wish to support from those registered on the website.
The first draw will take place on 25 November with a jackpot of £25,000 if all six numbers are matched in the correct order. There are also guaranteed raffle prizes to be won.
We are inviting charities and good causes across Essex to get involved. Whether you're a hospice, school, sports team or local charity, we'd love to work with you.
To be part of The Essex Lottery, you need to be based in Essex and provide a service that benefits Essex residents. Full terms and conditions at essexlottery.co.uk/good-causes/terms.
Registering is free and easy to complete. A good cause page will be provided on the lottery website, as well as personalised marketing materials and email and telephone support.
