Tickets are now available for the Allerdale and Lakeland weekly lottery.

The lottery, organised by Allerdale Council, helps community groups in the local area.

The council is urging groups to sign up to benefit from the lottery.

Groups that have already signed up include: Workington Town Community Trust; Workington Reds Ladies FC; schools and Hospice at Home West Cumbria.

At least 60 per cent from each ticket goes to support the Allerdale area and there is a £25,000 jackpot to win every week.

Tickets cost £1 each and each ticket has a one in 50 chance of winning a prize.

A draw will take place every Saturday and a six-digit winning combination will be picked. Winners will be notified via email.
