We are pleased to announce that the Lifeline Lottery draw will re-start on Wednesday 12th August.
We are also please to announce that we have a new partner in the shape of The National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA).
NYCDA is a “not for profit” organisation that is committed to helping its partners and affiliates to raise as much funding as possible through a weekly draw.
Not only will this help us grow, with access to extra resources, but the regular prize fund has increased. The NYCDA total cash prize pot up for grabs is £3,600, which sees prizes range from a guaranteed £2,000, to a £500 Rollover that can reach £10,000, as well as 65 smaller £10 prizes
Please note that due to the corona-virus outbreak and its adverse effects on membership numbers, the development association has taken the step to temporarily reduce the NYCDA Weekly Draw prize fund to £1,275. This will be broken down in the following way:
- 1 x £1,000
- 1 x £100
- 1 x £50
- 1 x £25
- 10 x £10
As well as the above cash prizes there will be monthly Club specific non-cash prizes e.g. match tickets and merchandise.
This is only a temporary measure and the reinstatement of the full prize fund is expected in the next couple of weeks.
If you already subscribe to the Lifeline Lottery, either as part of a Membership package or a stand-alone payment, then you do not need to take any action. You will shortly be receiving a letter giving more details of the new draws and you will be entered as soon as all our members have been moved to the new system, which we expect to be completed in time for the week beginning 10th August.
Many of you have continued to make payments through bank standing orders and some of you have already agreed to allow us to keep these payments as a donation, for which we are very grateful. If you are one of those who have continued to make payments but you wish to have a repayment for the “missing weeks” – which will be approximately 20, depending on the date when we recommence – then please email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for a refund.
Finally, we would like to thank you for your support as we need it now more than ever.
If you have any questions regarding the new lottery then please get in touch using the email above.
Peter Todd, General Manager
