Village Lottery

We have a new Village Lottery to help us continue fundraising for the cost of the Village Hall build. Join our lottery for the chance to win big cash prizes with monthly, quarterly and special pre-Christmas draws.

25% of the income from ticket sales will be distributed in prizes, the rest will go to the Ramsdell Village Hall build fund. We need to sell 50 tickets to kick off the Lottery. As more tickets are sold we can increase the value of the prizes. Our target is to reach 300 tickets in each monthly draw.

A detailed ‘How it Works’ guide is available to download. Draws will be the last Friday of each month with the first draw on Friday 27th January 2023.
