Hoppers Community Lottery First Winners

Date: 10 January 2016

With all the excitement on Saturday surrounding the largest ever jackpot in the National Lottery you would be forgiven for forgetting that Saturday also saw the first draw of the Hoppers Community Lottery.

The first draw took place in the clubhouse and was drawn by club general manager Richard Ellis and adjudicated by lottery organiser Sean Jackson.

In total 240 numbers were sold for a total of £120. Half of this fund is given as prizes with the other half going towards improvements and refurbishments around the club.

Congratulations to our first winners.

1st Prize – Number 28 – Michael Bailey – £36
2nd Prize – Number 191 – Dan Walmsley – £14.40
3rd Prize – Number 5 – Les Anson – £9.60.

Membership to the lottery can be made through the purchase of 50p units, either on 1st team match days (pay 2/3 weeks in front) or by monthly direct debit (minimum 2 numbers per week for DD).

The minimum purchase is a single unit however additional units which will increase the chances of winning a prize can be obtained in multiples of 50p. 50% of the monthly income is distributed in prizes of which there will be 3 per week.

As an example if 400 units are sold that will mean a prize pot of £100 with a first prize of £60, second prize of £24 and third prize of £16.

Winners will be published on the website, as well as the noticeboard in the club every week. A new Facebook page has been setup as well to help spread the word.
