Tickets for the much anticipated Salisbury City Community Lottery tickets go on sale today. Tickets are now available online for the Community Lottery and your chance to scoop a £25,000 jackpot and help local good causes.
The local lottery has been set up by Salisbury City Council and will be open to anyone in a bid to raise money for charities, community interest companies and organisations in Salisbury.
It costs £1 per game to play and winners could win up to £25,000 as part of the weekly draw. The first draw will take place on Saturday 27 March to give people the chance to purchase tickets and sign up as a good cause.
With the Coronavirus pandemic, it is more important than ever that local charities can continue to receive financial support into the future. Signing up to the lottery will help to raise money to continue to fund these projects.
