Lucky Severn Lottery

The Lucky Severn Lottery is a weekly community lottery raising money for good causes in the Stroud area. Tickets cost £1 and the big prize is £25,000.

You can nominate the Woodchester Mansion Trust to receive 50p for every pound you spend with the lottery, and the Trust also receives a share of a further 10p in every pound which is allocated across all the charities taking part.

The Trustees see this local lottery as a useful way of boosting income, to meet the massive conservation costs. They very much hope that all visitors to the Mansion and supporters of the Trust will join in – the Mansion will definitely be a winner and you may be too!

You can see from the list below that our supporters are rewarded – and the Mansion benefits too. If you’re a former volunteer, or a regular visitor to Woodchester Park, please consider buying tickets. Click here! Thank-you.

There’s a chance to win a THEATRE TRIP worth £1500 in the draw on October 28th.

You can choose whatever performance you wish, or even take a £1500 cash prize as an alternative.

No extra tickets are required – but if course the more tickets you buy, the greater your chance of winning this amazing prize.
