Lottery Odds Are High For Life Savers

With the threat of lottery players planning to boycott the national game as prices have risen to £2 to play, the fundraising team at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is highlighting service’s own lottery costs just £1 per week and means entrants can help save lives across their county.

“It’s understandable that several people are outraged about the price increase,” states Jason Levy, fundraising and marketing director for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. He adds: “That’s why we’re keen to demonstrate that people in Staffordshire can continue to pay just £1 if they join our lottery, and they have a great chance of winning up to £1,000 per week whilst also supporting our vital life saving service.”

As each mission costs £2,500 the charity’s lottery is a vital fundraising tool to enable the service to operate. Currently has over 40,000 people playing each week and players can win a top prize of £1,000 with four runner ups each winning £25.

Jason includes: “Last year the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity lottery raised over £1million towards our life saving service, which is a fantastic amount and helps to keep one aircraft in the air for six months. Although we can’t offer a jackpot of millions, our players have better odds of winning the £1,000 each week and our supporters are safe in the knowledge that they are helping to keep our three aircraft in the skies.”
