The local lottery has been set up by BVSC in a bid to raise money for charities and good causes across Birmingham.

Tickets are available to buy online at at a cost £1 each, and winners could scoop up to £25,000. Draws will take place every Saturday at 8pm. The lucky winners will be informed by email and will have the money transferred automatically into their bank account.

Brian Carr, BVSC’s Chief Executive, said “We’ve established The Birmingham Community Lottery as a way for good causes to raise essential funds.  60% of the money raised will go to good causes. The rest will go towards the prize money, running costs and VAT.  It’s a fantastic way for people to support a good cause of their choice, whilst also getting the chance to win up to £25,000”

Amongst more than 100 good causes already benefiting from the lottery are:

  • ROAM is a South Birmingham based charity that focuses on the wellbeing of children through play and connection in nature
  • Age UK Birmingham, providing a much loved and valued service for the community
  • Fur and Feathers Animal Sanctuary, rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals in Birmingham.

If you’re not sure which cause you want to support, you can choose the Birmingham Central Fund administered by BVSC. All money raised will be redistributed amongst the causes fundraising through the Birmingham Community Lottery.
