calderdale caresThe Calderdale Cares Lottery from Halifax Rugby League Football Club is administered by Community Foundation for Calderdale and has been set up with the aim of raising funds to support worthy charities, organisations and individuals in the Calderdale community.

The grants programme will support local organisations that will benefit Calderdale residents.

Unlike the National Lottery, which is £2, the Calderdale Cares Lottery is only £1 a week to enter.

You could win one of over 40 weekly prizes with daily draws (Mon-Fri) of £100, a rollover jackpot every Saturday of up to £2,000 and £5,000 super draws twice a year.

A minimum of 35% of every pound will be donated to support good causes across the Calderdale area, which is more than the National Lottery and Health Lottery as they only donate 28% and 20% respectively. To join, click here…
