Lottery tickets go on sale

30 October 2012

Tickets for this year’s Channel Islands Christmas Lottery are now available Island-wide. The Economic Development Department has marked the launch by presenting a cheque for £419,572 to the Association of Jersey Charities, reflecting the real and positive impact funds raised from the Channel Islands Lottery have on local organisations. The Assistant Minister for Economic Development, Deputy James Baker, presented the cheque to Phillip Callow, Treasurer of the Association of Jersey Charities.

The funds, which are made up of the Jersey proceeds of the 2011 Christmas Lottery and the year-round scratch cards, will be distributed among local charities.

Assistant Minister for Economic Development, Deputy James Baker, commented, "The Channel Islands Lottery is an opportunity for Islanders to contribute to the ongoing work of our local charities while being in with the chance of winning and realising their own dreams. Many of these charities rely on grants made possible by the Lottery so we urge Islanders to continue to show their support by buying a Christmas Lottery ticket. The more tickets Islanders buy, the more money we can give to charity next year."

Bronia Maçon, PR Fundraising Manager from the charity Les Amis, commented, "The grants we receive as a result of the Channel Islands Lottery are absolutely vital and without them we would have difficulty raising funds for capital projects. We will be using our grant from the 2011 Lottery funds to purchase a specially built wheelchair for a young resident, which will be delivered to us in time for Christmas."

Tickets for the Channel Islands Christmas Lottery cost £1 and are available from retailers across the Island. There will be a rising first prize starting at £300,000 and the numbers will be drawn on 20th December 2012.
