First draw for the West Berkshire Lottery this weekend!

The first draw for the new West Berkshire Lottery is now just a few days away. The first draw takes place this Saturday 30th March at 8pm.

The lottery is set to raise more than £30,000 for local good causes in its first year. So far 75 charities and good causes (including Kennet Radio) have signed up, and more than 1,000 tickets have been bought for the weekly draw.

Tickets cost £1, with 60p going back into the community. From each ticket sold, 50p goes to a good cause chosen by the player. Another 10p goes into a community fund.

Players can win prizes ranging from free plays up to a top prize of £25,000.

Kennet Community Radio is one of the good causes that you can support.
