Anyone who knows me knows how much I love entering competitions! I’ve been pretty successful over the years too, but I’ll save my bragging about prizes won for another blog post one day… My latest favourite one to enter is the Lincs Lotto because it also helps support local causes to where I live. We support Barton Juniors because that’s the team our son (sometimes) plays for, and my husband is a volunteer coach for one of the teams.

There are lots of local good causes to support, but let’s face it, we all want to actually win, as well as support our chosen charity or fund! Tickets cost just £1 per week, but of course, you could buy more than one ticket if you wanted to. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize – far better odds than winning on the National Lottery, Euromillions, Health Lottery etc. Every Saturday night a 6 digit winning combination is picked. Prizes are given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. If you match all 6 numbers, you win the £25,000 top prize!

Lincs Lotto is a weekly online lottery, which was created to support local causes in North Lincolnshire, and an amazing 60% of the pot goes to local good causes. The places to support range from sporting to community groups – each with their own great reason to raise money.

Barton Juniors FC provides an opportunity for children between the ages of 5- 16 to enjoy football, regardless of their ability. Each team is run by volunteers to provide the children with the opportunity to improve their skills, and experience being part of a team. It’s a great aspect of the community but one which needs money to continue to buy equipment and maintain the ground.

Please join the lottery today and choose which group you’d like to support. If I can persuade to you support Barton Junior Football Club, then all the better!

Good luck!

About childofthe80s

I’m a Mum, first and foremost. Henry is now 8 years old. I can’t believe where the time has gone… I’ve learnt a lot along the way, and I hope some of the experiences I choose to write about may be useful to you. I write about things that are going on in my life – a lifestyle blog, if you like. I like money saving and helping people to save money here and there, I also do a lot of honest reviews, so I shall be posting some of those on here too. I love photography – Henry is my most favourite subject – but I do love taking pictures of anything really. Children’s portraits are what I think I’m best at. I enter a lot of competitions – I admit it! It’s a great hobby to have and has brought many an experience our way which we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to do. A great example to give you was when I won a spa holiday to Kuala Lumpur – we flew business class and lived a life of luxury for 10 whole days. It was bliss and something we would have NEVER have been able to have treated ourselves to otherwise… and all because I sent my name and address on a postcard to the Times newspaper. I feel that I am fairly successful at comping because I put a lot of effort in – AND I have a positive attitude. I run a little business selling costume jewellery, and I also work 4 days a week in a digital library, so – what with all that – I’m a pretty busy person! I wouldn’t change any of it, mind… I hope you’ll find my posts interesting enough to stick around, follow me, share some of my pages etc. Anna x
