The Rules

Barnham and Eastergate Community Lottery Rules

For a payment of just £10 each month, you will be entered into a draw of which the maximum membership will be 200. Each monthly draw will have one prize of up to £1,000 (or 50% of the total membership for the month if there are less than 200 members). If there are less than 100 members a minimum prize of £500 is guaranteed.

The Lottery will be strictly limited to 200 members. For the modest contribution of £10 a month you will not only be supporting the valuable work of Barnham and Eastergate Community Trust but also giving yourself the chance of winning up to £1,000.

Payments can be made by 6 month or annual cheques made out to 'Barnham and Eastergate Community Trust' or by BACS. Most people pay by Standing Order which can be done online or by post to your bank.
