Want to avoid the hassle of holidaying abroad ? Have a staycation ~ courtesy of Northampton Lottery

Northampton Lottery have again teamed up with Forest Holidays to offer a UK holiday at one of Forest Holiday’s superb locations on dates of your choosing. Take a look at Forest Holidays’ website to see the sort of luxury holidays that they offer. All based on cabins or tree-houses located in some of Britain’s most beautiful forests, you can go fully self-catering, full board in the Forest Retreat restaurants, or anything in between. The choice is yours. Every cabin has a hot-tub (even the tree-houses !) and every one is socially distanced from all the other cabins by an average of 15+m.

Every ticket purchased for the lottery draw on Saturday 25th June will be entered into a draw for a Forest Holidays voucher worth £1,000. This is on top of the weekly draw which gives you an opportunity to win £25,000 as well as supporting us by helping to increase our funding.

Full Terms and Conditions of the Forest Holidays staycation promotion can be read by clicking HERE, which will take you to our Northampton Lottery page, where you can also buy your tickets. The £1,000 voucher will be valid for 12 months from the date that the winner claims the prize, following notification after the closing date.

Northampton Lottery operates on the principle of enabling people to raise money within the community for the community. The Lottery empowers local good causes to raise money in a fun and effective way and enables people to support the causes they care most about, helping these good causes to connect with their supporters.

A ticket for Northampton Lottery costs just £1 a week* and 50p of every ticket will go directly to the chosen good cause, with a further 10p going to other local causes. Every Northampton Lottery ticket that you buy through our Northampton Lottery page will help us to fund more activities in our West Hunsbury parks and even possibly help us to fund further research into the archaeology of the Iron Age Fort.

We hope you will win one (or more) of the weekly prizes on offer, which range from free Lottery tickets to £25,000 every week and, for all tickets purchased for the 25th June draw, that chance to win a £1,000 Forest Holidays voucher. The Lottery website reckons that “every ticket has a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize“, so what are you waiting for?

The draw takes place every Saturday night with results posted on the Northampton Lottery website, Facebook and Twitter. Winners will be advised directly, so if you don’t have the time to check who’s won, they will let you know.

GOOD LUCK from the Friends of West Hunsbury Parks.

*  You buy the weekly tickets for a month at a time, with a one-off payment, or you can choose to buy 1 or (hopefully) more weekly tickets every month. NBC have decided that there are 5 weeks in a month (!) so the minimum one-off payment (for 1 month) is for 5 weeks.

If you feel that is too much for you on your own, why not get a syndicate together. This will allow you to reduce your costs while increasing your chances of winning. Click HERE to find out more.
