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. On 30th October there's an extra prize - a chance to win £1000-worth of John Lewis vouchers.

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.

In the inaugural draw on 20th March one of our supporters, lucky Mr S from Stonehouse, won a second prize (3 extra tickets). Congratulations! The Mansion Trust benefited by £30 and we met our target of selling 50 tickets. We hope this will continue, indeed we hope to do better in the future.

Since then Mr P from Stroud has also won extra tickets, as have one of our trustees and Mr B from Stroud and Mr G from Stonehouse!

On 1st May Ms G from Gloucester won 3 extra tickets, as did Mr W from Stroud. In fact Mr W may have won 6 extra tickets - or were two different Mr W's from Stroud lucky that day?

And in the draw on 15th May another of our trustees struck really lucky, matching 3 numbers and winning the top prize of £25!

Recently Mrs W from Stroud, a steadfast long term supporter of the WMT, won 3 free tickets.

3rd July - another 3 free tickets, once again won by a Mr W from Stroud. The W's supporting Woodchester seem to be the lucky ones!

Our hard-working supporter Mr C from London won a second prize of 3 free tickets on 19th July.

27th July - our luck continues - supporters Ms M (Gloucester) and Ms P (Stonehouse) both won 3 free tickets!

Ms B from Stroud does loads of work for us and was rewarded with three free tickets in the draw on 7th August. In total we had 48 tickets in the draw this week and raised £28.80 for the Mansion.

4th Sept - two of our volunteers, both Ms G's, struck lucky this week with 3 free tickets each!

18th Sept - Mr W from Stroud, who we think is related to our hard-working volunteer Mrs W, won 3 free tickets.

25th Sept and 2nd Oct - Mr M from Stroud - lucky 2 weeks running with a total of 6 extra tickets!

16th Oct - another Mr W, this time from Cambridge (Cambridgeshire, not Gloucestershire) had 3 free tickets.

23rd Oct - the 3 free tickets went to Ms D from Wotton-under-Edge, a volunteer for 20 years.

30th Oct - Ms G from Gloucester won three free tickets...

6th Nov ...and she won three more this week, as did Ms G from Stroud!

29th Nov - this week's winner is former volunteer Mr A from Stroud.
