More than a dozen residents have struck lucky in a weekly lottery which benefits good
causes in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Two Newcastle residents, supporting Castle Capers Gang Show, have won £2,000 after
matching five numbers in the latest draw for the Lyme Lottery.

More than half of ticket sales go to good causes – tickets cost just £1 per week and each
one has a 1 in 50 chance to win, with a top prize of £25,000.

Three players pocketed £25 each recently and a further nine received free tickets. They are supporting the New Vic Theatre, Alice Charity, North Staffs LinkLine, Hempstalls
PSFA and Greyhound GAP among others.

Jon Mycock, from Castle Capers, said: “We’re really pleased that one of our supporters has been lucky enough to win a prize in the latest Lyme Lottery. We’ve found that the Lyme Lottery has been a fantastic way to gather support and interest for our scout gang show. It allows our supporters to get behind the show in a much more practical way while also giving them the chance to win some prize money.”
The main winner added: “We are thrilled to have won a prize and hope that more people
start playing the Lyme Lottery to be in with a chance. It’s nice to know that funds raised go to good causes which help the local community. We will be putting our winnings towards one of our crazy adventures.”
