TICKETS for the new Harlow Community Lottery are now on sale, with the first weekly draw taking place on 9 March. 

The local lottery has been set up by Harlow Council in a bid to raise money for charities and good causes throughout Harlow.

Tickets are available to buy online at www.harlowcommunitylottery.co.uk  at a cost of £1 each, and winners could scoop up to £25,000. Draws will take place every Saturday at 8pm. The lucky winners will be informed by email and will have the money transferred automatically into their bank account. 

Councillor John Steer, portfolio holder for community, said “We’ve established Harlow Community Lottery as a way for good causes to raise essential funds. 60% of the money raised will go to good causes. The rest will go towards the prize money, running costs, and VAT. It’s a fantastic way for people to support a good cause of their choice, whilst also getting the chance to win up to £25,000”

Amongst the good causes that will benefit from the lottery are Harlow Rock School, Streets2Homes, and Plant Pots and Wellies. Other not-for-profit organisations such as sports clubs, community groups and PTAs, are encouraged to sign up via the lottery website and start benefitting from the lottery.

If you’ve got tickets for the first draw, good luck and a big thank you for taking part.

In regards to the first comment this is a great way to raise money for good causes within our town. It is a shame that someone as to say that the Harlow Council are morons. I would call that person a do gooder and a proper moron. I think your real name is Gordon

Adam, have you seen how many councils run lotteries. Lottery is operated all over the world. It is like raffle and is not addictive like slots or poker. You need to get a brain as you are clearly not functioning right. Mark M is right.
