Release Date: 
Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 17:45


The Corby Lottery has had its first £2,000 winner! Mr M from Corby walked away with the cash by matching 5 out of the 6 numbers in Saturday’s draw (29th July).


Corby Lottery has only been active since May of this year and has had great support with lots of winners picking up cash and free tickets all whilst raising money for local good causes.


Since the first draw, Corby Lottery has so far raised a fantastic £10,000 for local good causes through ticket sales. If continued at this rate, this could add up to an incredible £36,000 for the first year!


The Corby Lottery is an exciting, local, weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Corby. Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 per week per ticket.  Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000!  That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!


The next draw takes place at 8.00 pm, Saturday, 5th August 2017 and it’s not too late to grab your tickets. Could you be the first lucky winner to walk away with the top prize of £25k. Tickets have to be bought online and you can nominate which of the good causes that are registered you wish to support.  


A full list of the good causes that are benefitting from the Corby Lottery can be found at www.corbylottery.co.uk/support/find-a-good-cause


For further information and to buy your tickets please visit Corby Lottery website www.corbylottery.co.uk/. No money from the lottery will be used to subsidise other council services.


Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member Community, Cllr John McGhee, said:


‘We would like to congratulate this week’s winner of £2,000, it really is great to see people benefitting from the Corby Lottery as well as the amazing local causes supported by the ticket sales.


‘The Corby Lottery has got off to a great start, over and above what we expected, and we are hoping for this to continue to grow.


‘Not only would we love to see close to £40k being put back in to the community over the first year but we would also love to see someone walk away with the Jackpot of £25k for themselves. You never know it might be this weekend!’
