As it marks its third birthday, Lincs Lotto is celebrating the sign up of its 135th good cause.

Scunthorpe Modern Image Railway Group are a small group of keen railway modellers aged from ten to over-70 who are fundraising to expand their club.

By joining Lincs Lotto as a good cause they have joined 134 other charities and community groups who have discovered a fantastic way of raising money.

They join Lindsey Lodge Hospice, Crowle & Ealand 1940s Events and Brigg Tennis Club – just three of the other good causes who receive cash every time someone buys a Lincs Lotto ticket.

For the 3rd anniversary celebration on 30 September, there will be a special raffle draw with six prizes, including bed & breakfast at Bardney Hall in Barton, a £100 Tesco giftcard, a toy tractor from Farmstar, a Tanks R Us hamper and more.

To be part of it, make sure you have bought tickets and are supporting a good cause before 30 September. For more information and terms and conditions go to the Lincs Lotto website.

Lincs Lotto was set up in 2017 by North Lincolnshire Council as a way of supporting local community projects – and giving local people the chance to win a £25,000 cash prize.

Good causes get 50 per cent of the proceeds from all ticket sales and another 10 per cent goes to support other local good causes through the Community Grant Fund.

Tickets for the weekly draw cost just £1 with a top prize of £25,000 up for grabs. There is a one in 50 chance of winning a prize every week.

To buy tickets and be in with a chance of picking up a prize, go to the Lincs Lotto website – this is where you will select which good cause you want to support and how many tickets you want to buy.

You can pay by direct debit or debit card, with 50p from every ticket bought going straight to your good cause.

As well as the top prize of £25,000 every week you can pick up £2,000, £250 or £25, or three extra free tickets for matching two numbers.

Special events throughout the year give players the chance to win anything from Apple iPads to meals out and weekend hotel breaks.

Winners are notified by email and are also published online every week. Your winnings are paid straight into your bank account – or you can donate them to a good cause.
