Somerset West Lottery is taking part in an initiative that could secure a city break for the lucky winner. It is the new, national bolt-on prize – the third prize initiative to launch this year.

Everyone who signs up to buy one or more lottery tickets from 2 – 27 May 2023 will be in with the chance to win a European city break: seeing the architecture and nightlife of Barcelona, sampling the art and food of Florence, soaking up the culture in Paris – or simply unwinding and seeing the sights. The prize is courtesy of the external lottery management company Gatherwell.

All tickets bought in the qualifying period will automatically be entered into the bonus prize draw as well as being in with a chance to win up to £25,000 in the weekly lottery run by Somerset Council. There were seven cash prize winners and 32 winners overall in the last draw on 22 April.

The Somerset West Lottery offers registered good causes the opportunity to raise income for their organisation by selling tickets to the public.

It gives 50p from every £1 ticket sold to local registered good causes with 10p from every ticket sale going into a community grant fund for which local good causes can apply.

If you know of a good cause wishing to raise funds or would like to buy a ticket contact the Somerset West Lottery on 0300 30 20 666; or visit
