Bracknell Forest Lottery
A community lottery will launch this autumn in Bracknell Forest.
Registration for good causes and local charities wanting to raise funds through the scheme is now open.
Bracknell Forest Lottery tickets will cost £1 with 60 pence going towards local good causes.
This compares to just 28 pence in the pound for the National Lottery.
Through the Bracknell Forest Lottery website, players will be able to select a specific good cause to support with 50 pence of their £1 going directly to that good cause. A further 10 pence of their pound will go into a general Bracknell Forest Lottery good causes fund. This fund will be distributed by the council.
Players who do not wish to support a specific cause can still take part in the Bracknell Forest Lottery, with 60 pence of their ticket price going into the general good causes fund.
The remaining 40 pence of every £1 will go towards prizes, operating costs and VAT.
Terms and conditions apply.
Registering as a good cause
Local charities and good causes can now register their interest by emailing email@example.com
We’ll need some key pieces of information to get you approved and registered as a good cause on Bracknell Forest Lottery.
- your organisation’s name
- key contact name and role
- phone number
We’ll also need you to confirm your eligibility.
In order to pay you your money we’ll need your bank details and we’ll also need you to provide a logo for your organisation to include on the specific marketing materials we’ll create for you.
You can provide these at sign-up, but they aren’t required to get you registered.
Receiving your share of ticket sales
Funds will be transferred directly in to the good cause’s bank account every month.
Every week an email will be sent to you with details including:
- how many supporters have chosen to direct their support to your good cause
- who they are
- how many tickets are being sold each week
- how much money has been raised
There is also a dashboard on the site which will provide real time statistics.
Unfortunately gift aid on lottery ticket purchases cannot currently be claimed.
