St Martin's Chavey Down Charity Lottery

 Dear Friend of St Martin’s,

Our Church, Hall and Car Park are valuable assets for the whole community, entirely funded by the donations of the St Martin’s congregation and the fees from hiring out the hall: we do not receive funding from central government or The Church of England. With the hall being closed due to covid restrictions for most of the past 18 months we have received little income.

To help secure the future of these facilities and to help with maintenance and running costs, we are launching the St Martin’s Chavey Down - Charity Lottery and would like to invite you to join. This is an open invitation to all where for an annual payment of £12 you will be allocated your own unique lottery number which will be entered into a quarterly draw for one of 3 cash prizes.

The prize fund will be 25% of the total payments received. As a minimum, we looking for 100 entries so for the equivalent of £3 per draw, the quarterly prizes will be:

1st Prize = £50

2nd Prize = £20

3rd Prize = £5

The remainder of the donations will be used to cover maintenance and running costs of the facilities.

The draw will take place on the 1st Sunday of each quarter (Jan, Apr, Jul & Oct). Only allocated numbers will be included in the lottery so the prizes will be won each time with no rollover. The winning numbers will be displayed on the church parish website, numbers and names will be displayed in the entrance porch at St Martin’s Church and winners will be contacted using the contact details provided with their entry fee.

Subject to sufficient entries, the first draw will be made on 3rd October 2021.

To join the lottery, please complete the form, and pay the corresponding annual payment of £12.

Please help to support your local community: the more people who buy a subscription – the higher the prize money!

Thank you
St Martin’s PCC
