Join for just £1 per number per month
The scheme was started in July 2017 to find a way to provide ongoing income for the library campaign and give you the chance to win a lottery prize each month as a thank you for your support.
As a Library Lottery Member you automatically become an FOPL member, with the added benefits of regular updates about our activities both fundraising and social, and a chance to help shape and develop the campaign.
How does it work?
It costs just £1 per subscription per month. Membership is on an annual basis so a minimum of £12 per annum.
There is a monthly draw at 11am on the first Saturday of every month for 50% of the income. This is then divided between 3 lucky winners. Here’s an example based on 100 lottery numbers sold: Income for that month will be £100. 50% will then be used as the prize fund. This means a First prize of £25, Second prize of £15 and a Third prize of £10. The remaining £50 is for FOPL fundraising.
Basically the more subscriptions – the higher the prize money!
