Retailtrust is launching Retailwinners, a lottery exclusively for those working in the retail industry. The initiative, which launches on 20th February, aims to raise further funds to help the Trust support the millions of people working in the sector.
Everyone from across Britain’s retail and associated industries will be eligible to play. The weekly draw offers prizes of 1 x £500, 2 x £50 and 10 x £10. There will also be a grand prize of up to £5,000 every six months. Tickets are £1 each and entry is online via a Direct Debit form.
Michael Green, Development Director, Retailtrust is excited about the launch. He said: “This lottery is our way, and the retail industry’s way, of giving back to those who work so hard to make this industry successful. It’s a 1 in 135 chance of winning, sounds like good odds to me.”
The money raised will fund services such as the charity’s free and confidential helpline. It will also support new initiatives like Retailright, a programme that prepares unemployed and under-skilled 16 to 24-year-olds for employment in retail.
