Last week, Galloway's launched a new lottery scheme to help support people living with sight loss across Lancashire and Sefton.
The lottery will help the charity to develop new services to support the growing numbers of people living with sight loss as well as help to fund the services Galloway’s already offers.
Stuart Clayton, Chief Executive Officer of Galloway’s, said: “The Galloway’s Lottery is a significant milestone in our fundraising history. It will ensure that we can help even more local people who are in need of our support, not only through the funds the lottery will generate but also through the increased awareness that this might bring.
“At Galloway’s, we are passionate about providing the best practical and emotional support to people living with sight loss so that they can continue to live full and independent lives.
“We want to be able to reach even more people across the north west of England who may be in need of our services. The number of people living with sight loss in our area is expected to grow by over 30% by the year 2030. The Galloway’s Lottery will be a vital income stream which will help to ensure nobody faces a life with sight loss alone.”
Holly Atkinson, Individual Giving & Legacies Fundraiser at Galloway’s said: “At Galloway’s we are always looking for new ways to fundraise so that we can carry on our work supporting blind and partially sighted people.
“The lottery is a new, exciting way for our community to help us raise funds for our vital work. We hope that the lottery will not only add an element of fun to encourage people to sign up, but it will also enable supporters to give regularly to Galloway’s, which is crucial for our future development.”
For just £1 per week players will be allocated with a unique six-digit lottery number, which will remain yours for as long as you wish to keep playing. You can purchase more than one lottery number if you wish. Winners have to match 3, 4, 5 or all 6 digits of the winning number in the correct place in the sequence to win prizes of five free tickets to the next draw, £25, £1,000, or the jackpot prize of £25,000!
Players are able to pay online via direct debit or make a card payment, or can also pay by cheque. Players must be 16 or over to enter.
Stuart added: “The Galloway’s Lottery is hopefully going to generate a great deal of excitement for players though we are keen to remind everyone to play responsibly.”
