The North Devon Council is launching a lottery to help local good causes, commencing 2024.

The community lottery is an opportunity for residents and visitors to support local charities and good causes in North Devon, while also getting the chance to win cash prizes.

The Council hired lottery management company Gatherwell to run the initiative, with the company having already launched similar lotteries for councils such as North Somerset and Teignbridge.

Every ticket bought will donate 50% of proceeds to local causes chosen by lottery players. An additional 10% from every ticket will go into a ‘central fund’ that will be distributed to fund schemes in North Devon that ‘directly benefit the public.’

The remaining 40% of ticket sales will be put towards the prizes and operating costs. 

Tickets will cost £1 a week. The weekly draw will have a jackpot of £25,000 with other cash prizes being £2,000,Table games £250 and £25.

The Leader of North Devon Council, Councillor Ian Roome, said: “It is a pleasure to launch the new North Devon Community Lottery, which is a fantastic opportunity for residents to support local good causes. We hope it will open up a valuable funding stream for our amazing local voluntary and community organisations.

“Users can choose who they want to support, which means residents can be sure that their money is going directly to causes they care about. It's a fun and easy way to support our community and you could be in with a chance of winning some amazing cash prizes at the same time.”
