Play for Purpose
Made possible by The Lott. 

As part of its support of community organisations, The Lott, the official home of Australia’s Lotteries, provides resources and financial support to every Play For Purpose raffle.  


A minimum of 50% of your ticket directly supports the Charity or Sporting Club that you choose. The other 50% is used to fund prizes and help run the raffle.

Support from the Lott helps to reduce Play For Purpose’s administration costs which means more money from every raffle ticket goes directly to a good cause
