West Berkshire Lottery

LOGO: West Berkshire Lottery

Tickets for West Berkshire's lottery are now on sale. More than 100 good causes in the area have signed up to take part in the West Berkshire Lottery with players able to choose which cause they would like to support. From every £1 ticket sold, 50p goes directly to the chosen cause and another 10p is put into a community fund.

Buy your tickets on the West Berkshire Lottery website.

Community Fund

The community fund allows one-off grants to be made to the lottery causes in addition to their direct fundraising and will be awarded by an independent panel on behalf of West Berkshire Council.

If you are one of the good causes who are raising funds through the West Berkshire Lottery you can apply for a grant.

The fund currently is sitting at £13,000.

Apply for the Community Fund

Applications are now open for good causes who are participants in the West Berkshire Lottery and have sold ten or more tickets per week over the preceding ten weeks of play, up to the closing date for applications. Please complete the application form below:

Applications should be sent to lottery@westberks.gov.uk and must be submitted by 12 noon on Friday 18th December 2020.   Please note that due to the pandemic and the need to keep staff safe, many of our staff are working from home during this current time.  This will therefore mean for this year we can only accept paperwork sent in by email to the afdrementioned email address.

The independent panel will meet early in the new year, and we will let you know by then if you've been successful.
