How it works

Tickets cost just £1 and players can choose which local good cause(s) they want to support when they purchase tickets. Prizes range from free prize draw entries to a £25,000 jackpot.

To buy your tickets just head to the official website for the White Horse Community Lottery – Good Luck!

From every £1 ticket sold 

  • 50p goes to registered good causes and 10p into a general fund, known as the White Horse Community Fund, which supports the voluntary sector in Vale of White Horse
  • 20p to the prize fund
  • 17p to Gatherwell, the external lottery management operator that runs the lottery on our behalf
  • 3P to VAT

More information about the Charitable Community Fund

Proceeds from the general White Horse Community Fund will provide vital support and unrestricted income to a wide range of local organisations and community initiatives which have a beneficial impact on the local community.

When participants take part in the lottery, they can either support a charity/group or donate to the central community fund which is administered by Vale of White horse District Council and all funds from the central fund will be distributed annually to multiple good causes.

We have set up an awards process to distribute the central fund to local good causes who are registered on the lottery, based on the following criteria:

  • Funds raised will be shared proportionately between all organisations selling 20 tickets or more a week.
  • There is no formal application process, as organisations who qualify for an award will be automatically notified in writing.
  • Any eligible award will be paid directly into the organisation’s bank account.

Information for good causes

Voluntary and charitable groups who operate in the district are invited to join and start benefiting from being part of the White Horse Community Lottery. What’s more, it’s free for good causes to get involved!

If you would like to register your VCS organisation or community group as a good cause, and start generating regular unrestricted income, simply head to our official White Horse Community Lottery website, or email
