A lucky Lotto player from Kingsbridge scooped a £2,000 win in the SeaMoor Lotto 1 May 2021 draw.

Since it launched in 2018, supporters of SeaMoor Lotto have won over £13,000 in cash and more than £68,000 has been raised for the local community.

SeaMoor Lotto is an online sustainable fundraising solution provided by South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council. It’s designed to help local not-for-profits organisations and community groups to raise money in a safe, fun and effective way. There are no upfront costs and because it is so easy, it’s a popular fundraising tool.

Anyone can buy a ‘chance’ and support the local community today by playing the lottery. There are over 101 local registered causes, ranging from Scout groups and school PTAs to sports teams and local foodbanks. The chosen cause receives 50% of the £1 ticket with an additional 10% going to further support the local community through a central fund. For example, earlier this year the fund gave £8,000 to six local secondary schools to fund IT equipment for children struggling to access remote learning.

There are weekly cash prizes to be won up to the value of the £25,000 jackpot. With 50:1 odds of winning a prize you’ll find it a bit of fun at the same time as knowing you’re really helping your local community.

South Hams District Council’s Leader Councillor Judy Pearce congratulated the winner. She said: “It’s great to hear that one of our SeaMoor Lotto players has won this fabulous cash prize – it really does remind us that it ‘could be you.’ Playing SeaMoor Lotto is a double win for everyone.

"When you support your favourite local cause and buy a ticket or ten you have all the fun of maybe winning a prize. Most importantly, you know that your money will go to really make a difference to our local good causes and our community right here in the South Hams and West Devon.

“It’s been a tough year for fundraising, especially for small organisations. I’m pleased that our lottery offers a safe and convenient way for local groups to raise much-need funds and gives local people a chance to support those local causes they really care about.”
