From each £1 ticket, 60 pence will go to local good causes that work in South Kesteven – more than twice the proportion raised by the National Lottery.
When a participant chooses one of the registered charities or good causes, the organisation will receive a 50 pence donation, with 10 pence going towards a central ‘Community Fund’. If no charity is chosen, all 60 pence goes to the Fund.
