29th April 2017
The primary aim of the village lottery is to raise funds for the village hall, but also to have a ‘flutter', adding a little fun and excitement to supporting a worthwhile cause.
April 2017 Numbers: 144 and 27
Supporting the Village Lottery
Anyone can join - you don't have to reside in Leigh. The annual subscription is £12.00 per 'unit'. Subscribers can buy as many units as they like.
The draw takes place 12 times each year at the end of each month. If you purchase one lottery unit, you get one number. When the draw takes place, a unit is actually a numbered ball in a tumbling cage. If you wish to buy more units, you get more numbered balls, so your chance of winning increases.
The Monthly Draws
There are generally two prizes awarded each month, with extra prizes in May and November. This is shown below. Prizes are based on last year's subscriptions but are generally the same from year to year.
On average, 50% of the subscriptions are paid as prizes, the other 50% goes to the village hall fund.
Joining the Lottery
Most people join for a whole year, but if you are new to the village, you can join part-way through the year and pay through to January which is our end of year. If you wish to join, please contact John and Fiona Parks - 01935 873 603.
