From 25 April 2017 you will be able to buy tickets for the Torbay Lottery to help your chosen cause raise funds and be in with a chance of winning the £25,000 jackpot! Furthermore, those who sign up to the lottery before 27 May will be entered into a special prize draw to win a pair of annual tickets to Torre Abbey.

Following an event on 30 March, 37 good causes have signed up, enabling them to receive much-needed money. These organisations include sports, disabilities, support, health and community groups. The Torbay Lottery is free for them to join and they will receive 50p for every ticket sold to their supporters.

Now Torbay Council is asking everyone in Torbay to help spread the word and get involved by playing the lottery or encouraging more good causes to sign up.

So far, players can either choose one of the following organisations or their money will go to a central small grants pot where community groups can bid for up to £5,000 for a specific event or small item of equipment:
