Erskine is urging people to be in it to win it as it marks the launch of its first lottery
Scotland’s biggest Veterans charity is offering players the opportunity to scoop a stunning jackpot of up to £25,000 every single week, whilst at the same time supporting Veterans and their families at Erskine. Running every Friday, tickets are priced at just £1 and offer a range of cash prizes. Each £1 entry has a 1 in 63 chance of winning one of four fantastic prizes.
Sara Bannerman, Erskine Head of Fundraising & Communications, said: “By playing the Erskine Lottery, you’ll be in with the chance of winning incredible cash prizes every week. But most importantly, you’ll be helping to improve the lives of Veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much.
“As a charity, we rely on donations, we identified the lottery as a new, fun and exciting way for our supporters to get involved along with an opportunity to win big prizes and it is so easy to play online at erskine.org.uk/lottery.”
Each year, Erskine provides crucial support to nearly 1,000 ex-servicemen and women. However, it must raise around £10 million every year in order to maintain this level of high-quality care.
Veterans living in Scotland can receive support across the charity’s network of four care homes and Veterans Village – made up of 44 cottages, an Activity Centre, five assisted living apartments, and 24 single living apartments.
Erskine is working with the providers of Unity, a lottery platform designed to help charities raise vital funds via a weekly lottery. Unity, which offers the best odds of any platform of its kind, is a number match game, which means the odds are fixed to therefore ensure every lottery number has an equal chance of winning a prize. While a player matching six digits takes the jackpot, there are also prizes of £1,000, £25, and five entries into the next draw, for those who match five, four and three digits respectively.
