WINNING NUMBERS: Maryport Inshore Rescue launches its lotto

The Lifeboat Lotto will help keep the voluntary rescue service afloat.

The lottery will give people the chance to win £1,000 a week. If the jackpot is not won, it will roll over until it reaches £5,000 when there will be a guaranteed win.

Mike Messenger, of the inshore rescue group, said some of the money raised would be earmarked for the 10-year overhaul of the inshore rescue boat, which could cost up to £75,000.

He said: “The Lifeboat Lotto will be a very welcome addition to our options for fund-raising, as it has done at several other independent stations in the UK, and we are sure it will prove popular with our local supporters.”

Entry is £2 a week and there are no weekly forms to fill in.

Participants pick four numbers between one and 31 and the first draw is due to take place on March 19.
