We are excited to announce our new partnership with Unity Lottery which gives you the chance to win up to £25,000 and support the ELR.
Unity is the nation’s fundraising lottery scheme. It’s designed to give good causes large and small – from village playground fund to international charity – the chance to gain support and raise valuable funds through their own weekly lottery draw.
You can play for as little as £1 per week. 50p of every £1 you play is guaranteed to go straight to the ELR. The remaining 50p will be used to provide prizes and cover administration costs. By joining the Unity Lottery you will be entered into the respective draw of the society that you wish to support.
For just £1 per week you will be allocated with a six digit Unity Lottery number, which will remain yours for as long as you wish to keep playing. You can purchase more than one number if you wish.
Every Saturday, the lucky winners are selected at random and prize cheques issued and posted directly to you, so there is no need for you to claim. You must be 16 or over to enter. Winners have to match 3, 4 5 or all 6 digits of the winning number in the correct place in the sequence.
All you have to do is search for the East Lancashire Railway Holdings Company Limited and select this as your chosen cause. You will then be able to sign up via Direct Debit or you can download an application form.
We hope with this new initiative we will be able to attract additional fundraising income as well as giving our supporters a chance of winning some money too!
