Copmanthorpe Sink or Win! is a village lottery to raise money for the pool.
How much does it cost?
The lottery costs £1 per ticket per month! There is no limit how many tickets each person or household can have but all lottery members must be over 16 years of age.
Where does the money go?
The aim of the lottery is to raise funds specifically for the village swimming pool. The rules governing local village lotteries state that a minimum of 40% of the total income must be awarded as prizes.
What are the prizes?
The number and size of the prizes depend on the number of people who sign up to the village lottery. Here are some examples:
100 members = £1200 income, Prize money (min. 40%) = £520 per year, leaving £680 annually for the pool.
Example prizes every month = 1x£25, 1x£10
250 members = £3000 income, Prize money (min. 40%) = £1220 per year, leaving £1780 annually for the pool.
Example prizes every month = 1x£50, 1x£25 and 1x£10
500 members = £6000 income, Prize money (min. 40%) = £2470 per year, leaving £3530 annually for the pool.
Example prizes every month = 1x£100, 1X£50, 1x£25 and 1x£10
When do the draws take place?
The draws will take place on the last day of every month and winners will be notified by email or post, depending on their preference, as indicated on the application form.
Who runs the lottery?
The Treasurer of Copmanthorpe Sink or Swim, Dave Chapman and Chair of Friends of Copmanthorpe Primary School Group, Claire Khouja along with the Chair of Copmanthorpe Sink or Swim, Joanna Bowen will run and administer the draw together. A random number generator will be used to select the numbers and this will be done completely independent from the details of subscribers. The names of monthly prize winners will be added to Copmanthorpe Sink or Swim and Friends websites (unless people do not wish their name to be published online). The websites will also include details of the number and size of prizes currently available, how to sign up and how to unsubscribe from the lottery.
What if the pool project ceases in the future?
We hope that all our efforts will result in the pool being re-opened but, if the project ceases at any point in the future, all proceeds from the lottery will be transferred to the Friends of Copmanthorpe Primary School and Copmanthorpe Sports & Recreation Centre with immediate effect and all subscribers will be notified.
