Tickets for the new Wealden Community Lottery are now on sale, with the first weekly draw taking place on Saturday 25 March.

The local lottery has been set up by Wealden District Council to help local good causes throughout Wealden to raise money.

Draws will take place every Saturday at 8pm. The lucky winners will be informed by email and will have the money transferred automatically into their bank account.

Wealden council’s portfolio holder for Community Councillor Pam Doodes said, “We’ve established Wealden Community Lottery as a way for good causes to raise essential funds.

“Some 50% of the money raised will go to good causes which have signed up. The rest will go towards the prize money and running costs, and VAT. It’s a fantastic way for people to support a good cause of their choice, whilst also getting the chance to win up to £25,000. I wish everyone the best of luck.”
