DDC : Community Lottery consultation

DDC have published a press release concerning a consultation related to a proposal to establish an online community lottery. Here’s a summary…

People are being asked for their views on whether an online community lottery should be launched in Daventry District.

The scheme, which would offer weekly cash prizes, is being explored in a bid to boost the amount of funding available to community and voluntary groups in the area.

People would have the option to assign a portion of their ticket price to the local community group of their choice, with a further portion going into a general fund to be redistributed as community grants.

Have your say by following the link www.daventrydc.gov.uk/consultation before the deadline of Monday, 31 October 2016.
