Banbury non-profits called out ahead of lottery launch
Cherwell District Council is launching the lottery as a fresh funding stream for charities and community groups. The Good Cause Partners launch event will take place at Banbury Town Hall on Wednesday, May 15 between 5pm and 7pm.
It’s an opportunity for anyone who works in the charity or community sector to find out more about how their organisation could benefit from the lottery, which goes live in July. One in every 50 tickets will deliver a prize to players and prizes up to £25,000 are on offer.
Graeme Kane, Cherwell’s chief operating officer, said: “The Cherwell Lottery is going to be a fantastic new funding stream for the local organisations who do so much to support our communities.
“Sports clubs, youth groups, and people who are volunteering to make a difference to vulnerable neighbours or to the environment – we would like them all to sign up and be part of the Cherwell Lottery.
He added: “I hope lots of people connected to voluntary or charity organisations will attend this exciting launch event and be inspired to sign up.”
Lottery players will have the option of donating directly to the named partner organisations when they buy their tickets, or to donate to a central fund to which not-for-profit groups can apply to receive a special one-off grant.
