ALWAYS looking at new and exciting ways to engage with the local community and raise funds for our wide-ranging community projects, Burton Albion Community Trust is delighted to announce it is launching its very own lottery this week.

For as little as £1 per week, members have the chance to win a £500 Rollover Jackpot, which can reach a maximum of £10,000.  In addition, there are £125, £250 and £2,000 prizes and 65 £10 prizes up for grabs. 

Members will also have the chance to win Burton Albion match tickets, hospitality spaces and leisurewear. We also have a growing number of fantastic entertainment prizes from our friends at restaurants and cafes across Burton and the surrounding area.

On signing up, every member will receive their very own welcome pack, which features details about the lottery and your personalised membership numbers. The draw takes place every Wednesday and results will be circulated across all BACT social media platforms and official website. All winners will be notified directly.

All proceeds from the BACT Lottery will go towards our mission of ‘Making a difference to our communities through the power of sport and brand of Burton Albion FC’. The funds that we raise through this Lottery are crucial as we seek to deliver many more of our initiatives to the wider community, and we thank you in advance for your support.

BACT’s programmes reach out to children as young as two years old right the way through to last year when a lady celebrated her 100th birthday on one of our active ageing projects. 

Last year, BACT delivered more than 21,000 hours of community engagement across 46 different projects, averaging more than 7,200 community members each week. This would not happen without the amazing community partners who support BACT and also individuals, such as you, who continue to support us.

Head of Community, Matt Hancock, said: “This is an exciting development for BACT and something we are delighted to launch for the local community. We are hoping it will create a buzz around the town but also give people the opportunity to win great prizes whilst also knowing that their money is going to make a difference to local communities.”
