Channel Islands Lottery is Supporting Good Causes

CHARITY. Community. Neither have ever been more important than now. In a world presenting many challenges, and considering the current cost of living, there are still good people out there doing incredible things and brilliant charities transforming lives.

Through these groups, Islanders of all ages, backgrounds and abilities are receiving support, services and enrichment. Whether relating to animals, sports, services, mental and physical health, the arts, education and everything in between, there are currently nearly 500 charities in Jersey alone.

One of the biggest ways that charities can receive funding is through the Channel Islands Lottery, with the Association of Jersey Charities and Jersey Community Foundation allocating the lottery funding throughout the year through a grant system. Each year, CI Lottery instant games contribute £2 million to empower a variety of vital causes to make a positive and meaningful difference for Islanders in Guernsey and Jersey.
Distributed in Jersey by leading Channel Islands supplier JJ Fox Trading Ltd, CI Lottery tickets are sold through participating retailers and businesses all year round and, of course, from the designated lottery kiosk in King Street.

“We are incredibly thankful to everyone who supports the Channel Islands Lottery in various ways,” says Philip Taylor, chairman of Fox Trading. “This includes the many retail premises and businesses that help us to sell the tickets and promote the good causes behind the scenes. We’re grateful that even in these times, with cost-of-living considerations, people are still buying tickets and helping Island charities. If Islanders continue to rally round the CI Lottery, then we can ensure that 2024 will be another bright year of fundraising – plus you have a chance to win prizes with the lottery yourself.”

More Than Just A Ticket...

The Association of Jersey Charities chief executive Beth Gallichan adds: “Many Islanders depend on local charities, but the truth is that charities also depend on Islanders’ generosity. Maybe not today but at some point, you, your loved one, neighbours, our culture and wildlife have been helped or will need help. Charities are not only here to support our community in a crisis but also to find solutions to some of our long-term challenges. We must put our trust in charities, powered by dedicated staff, volunteers, funders and donors. All their activities are for public benefit.”

In the past few years, according to a recent charity survey carried out by the Association of Jersey Charities, more than half (57%) of those charities responding said they had seen a drop in fundraising income over the past 12 months, while at the same time more than half (55%) also said they had seen an increase in demand for their services this year.

Therefore, next time you pick up a lottery ticket, remember, even if you don’t win big, the funds go back into the community. Here are just a few stories from some of our Island’s charities who have benefitted from lottery funding in the last year.
