Almost £300,000 raised for local good causes with Vale Lottery, and another bonus birthday prize draw!

4 Nov 2019

This summer, Vale Lottery celebrated raising over a quarter of a million pounds for local good causes and now, as Vale Lottery approaches its fourth anniversary, the £300,000 milestone is well within reach! What better way to start the celebrations than with another special bonus birthday prize draw from Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC).


Almost four years after its launch, AVDC’s Vale Lottery is just a stone’s throw away from raising £300,000 for good causes in the Vale. Vale Lottery helps to provide invaluable funds to a range of local good causes, including sports clubs, animal charities, theatre groups, disability charities and more than 50 schools. There are over 200 causes signed up, with some raising thousands of pounds a year.


And it’s not just the good causes that win. To date, Vale Lottery has given away more than 26,000 free tickets and over £68,000 worth of cash prizes to its players - and there’s a fantastic £25,000 jackpot to be won too! Supporters also have the chance to win some incredible bonus prizes in the exciting prize draws throughout the year. Vale Lottery’s fourth birthday is no exception, with yet another spectacular bonus birthday prize draw.


Over the next five weeks, everyone signed up to Vale Lottery will be entered into the draw for the opportunity to win one of four amazing prizes, kindly provided by some of our fabulous supporters. Prizes include: two weekend Grandstand tickets for July 2020 at Silverstone, four  VIP tickets to see Beauty and the Beast at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, a family ticket to explore the Christmas grounds at Waddesdon Manor and an exclusive radio experience with Mix96’s Wes Venn.


Councillor Judy Brandis, AVDC’s Chairman said: “Vale Lottery has seen tremendous success raising money in the community, for the community. The model has been adopted by 70 local authorities nationwide and across the UK over £1.5 million is being raised annually for nearly 3,000 good causes (and counting), and it all started here in Aylesbury Vale!

“There’s never been a better time to start supporting one of the fantastic local good causes right here in Aylesbury Vale. Sign up today to start raising money with Vale Lottery and you’ll be entered into the amazing birthday prize draw!”


Sign up to Vale Lottery by 8pm on Saturday 7 December to be entered into the special prize draw. Tickets for Vale Lottery cost just £1 a week, with 60p from every ticket going directly to local good causes – that’s more than double the amount donated per pound by the National Lottery, with the balance going to running costs and prizes.
