By purchasing a £1 Safer Dorset Lottery ticket, you’re not only in with a chance of winning £25,000, but you’re also supporting community safety activities benefiting young people living locally.

Half of the lottery ticket cost goes directly to helping local people, with the other half going towards prizes and administrating the lottery. This makes it one of the most ethical lotteries on the market, with a significant proportion being given to charitable causes.

If you are a £25,000 jackpot winner, not only do you receive a cheque, our charity will also receive one for £25,000.

Weekly prizes include £25,000, £1,000, £100 and three free tickets for entry into the following week’s draw. There is also an additional monthly bonus draw of £1,000.
