Lottery Rules and Governance

Draws will be held three times a year, at the Spring Market, in June at the Village Fayre and during the Christmas Market. If these events are cancelled then new dates will be announced here on our website and Facebook page. The prize money will be for 50% of the income for that 3rd of the year and this amount will be divided between 3 lucky winners (depending on the size of the membership at the time of the draw) and the number of lucky winners will be at the discretion of the Hadlow Down Community Committee.

The draw fund will be made up as follows:-

if we have 100 members the income for a 3rd of the year (4 months) will be £400

50% will be used as the prize fund e.g. £200 split into three prizes, 50% will go to the HDCC Fund.

The 1st prize will be £100

The 2nd prize will be £75

The 3rd prize will be £25

You may buy more than one number, up to 12 per person, but you will be asked to pay for 12 months in advance at £12 per number.

The more people who buy a subscription – the higher the prize money!
