East Herts Lottery Fundraising

The East Herts Lottery was set up by the Council to help charities, local voluntary organisations, sports clubs and community groups to raise funds. It is an online lottery with a weekly draw.

Tickets cost £1 and 50p of the ticket price goes to the local good cause chosen by the ticket purchaser on the East Herts Lottery website. Supporters get to donate funds to causes dear to their hearts and invest in their local community at the same time as being in with a chance of winning up to £25,000!

Not for profit organisations based in or providing a service to residents in East Herts, which includes the towns of Hertford, Ware, Buntingford, Sawbridgeworth and Bishop’s Stortford and the villages in between, can sign up for free to raise funds through the East Herts Lottery. Good causes also receive free marketing materials to help them promote the Lottery to their supporters. Signing up as a good cause takes only 10 minutes. You will need details of your organisation’s bank account, a logo if you have one, and a brief description about what you do for residents in East Herts. Please be sure to check the Terms and Conditions.
