Invitation from Newcastle Borough Council to the Lyme Lottery Launch Event 20th June 2017

As you may have heard in the news, we are launching a new online lottery for the Borough called the Lyme Lottery. We are initiating the lottery as we recognise that since the austerity measures have been underway by Central Government, the local voluntary and community sector are very often the hardest hit.

60p from every £1 ticket of Lyme Lottery will go direct to charities, voluntary organisations and other good causes like you. Players of the lottery can win a £25,000 jackpot, plus a range of smaller cash prizes.
