Local charities are reminded that they can now apply for a grant from the record breaking Christmas Lottery. The first prize jackpot climbed to £1,220,600 – the highest in the history of the Channel Islands Lottery.

The proceeds from tickets sold in Guernsey will be given to the Association of Guernsey Charities to distribute, and they are reminding charities that applications for a share of the funds need to be returned by 31 January. Applying for a Christmas Lottery Grant.

2014 Christmas Lottery breaks previous records

The 2014 Christmas Lottery has now broken all previous records. The first prize is £1,220,600.  It looks as though this year's draw is on its way to selling out of tickets, so it is going to be a great Christmas for one lucky winner, in addition to plenty of other prizes.  It also means that many projects around the islands will be given a boost through next year with more money being available for local charities.  This will help so many people and projects throughout our local community.  On behalf of the charities that will benefit, thank you to everybody supporting this year's lottery.   

Charities in Guernsey can already start to apply for a lottery grant by completing an application form. Please visit for details.
