SO Charitable Lottery
Tickets are on sale for our SO Charitable Lottery which supports local charities and voluntary groups in South Oxfordshire.
The lottery operates on the principle of raising money in the community, for the community – empowering local groups to generate vital funds in an effective way, while enabling players to support the causes they want.
Tickets cost £1, with 60p going to good causes and the local community. Players can choose which local good cause/s they support when they purchase tickets and prizes range from free prize draw entries to a £25,000 jackpot.
Our council set up the lottery as we give around £1.5 million through grants to the district’s voluntary and community groups each year and know that there’s great demand for financial support.
We do not receive any of the proceeds and from every ticket sold:
• 50p goes to registered good causes and 10p into a general fund, which supports the voluntary sector in South Oxfordshire
• 20p to the prize fund
• 17p to Gatherwell, the external lottery management operator that runs the lottery on our behalf
• 3p to VAT
