Tandridge Together Lottery celebrates its first £2,000 winner
One lucky Tandridge Together Lottery player from Tatsfield won £2,000 in the draw on Saturday 14 April. It is the second prize available to win and the largest prize awarded since the lottery started on 31 March 2018. In addition one player won £25 and 53 players won three free tickets.
Tatsfield Horticultural Society and Composting Group were the winner’s choice of local good cause to support with their ticket purchase. Philip Brett, a representative of the group, said: “We are delighted one of our supporters has won the biggest prize so far. We rely on the community's support in so many ways and joining the Tandridge Together Lottery is a very good way to raise some extra funds to continue our activities in the village. We are so glad one of our supporters has won this super prize."
There are 115 good causes in the Tandridge district registered on the website and anyone buying a ticket can select the local good cause they want to support from these.
50p of the £1 ticket price goes directly to the chosen good cause, with a further 10p in every pound going into a fund for the Council to distribute in the form of small grants, to a wide range of good cause projects who apply for support in the Tandridge district. The rest goes towards prizes and administration costs.
Draws take place every Saturday night and tickets cost £1. All profits go to good causes in the Tandridge district. Tickets are available to buy at www.tandridgelottery.co.uk and residents who don’t have access to the internet can also take part by calling 01883 460555.
