Double your luck with Vale Lottery’s First Birthday Bonanza Aylesbury Vale District Council’s Vale Lottery turns one on Monday 28 November and will be celebrating by giving away a guaranteed £1000 in its First Birthday Bonanza prize draw! And, of course, there’ll also be the chance of that £25,000 jackpot too. The additional draw will take place during the Vale Lottery First Birthday Bash, where AVDC will be inviting the local good causes to join them to celebrate. The £1000 additional prize draw will be available to anyone who has signed up to the online lottery by 8pm on Saturday 26 November. Vale Lottery, the first online community lottery to be launched by a council in this country, currently supports 128 good causes, which all benefit the Aylesbury Vale community. These include local disability groups, animal charities, sports clubs, theatre groups and schools. Under the scheme, 60p in every pound goes directly to a good cause and the remaining costs go towards the running costs and prize fund - AVDC do not take a penny. You can chose to either support a favourite local cause or alternatively support the general good cause fund, which is administered by AVDC and provides vital support to a wide range local organisations. To date, Vale Lottery has celebrated with numerous winners, including one lucky local who won £2000, after getting a five number match! Due to the lottery’s success the jackpot was increased back in June to a whopping £25,000, which has helped towards the causes being on track to receive a total of more than £66,000 by the end of its first year. Cllr. Janet Blake, Cabinet Member for Transformation said: “It’s with great pleasure that we announce the £1000 prize draw to celebrate the Vale Lottery’s first birthday. We hope that even more of the community will get involved with the scheme, to help support the many worthwhile good causes across the Vale. This has been a fantastic project so far and it’s really encouraging to see other councils are already following our lead. Good luck everyone!”
