A town in Surrey has launched its own non-profit making weekly lottery to support local projects and initiatives.

The first tickets went on sale for 1 in Godalming on Saturday at outlets displaying the GOLO sign.

From a guaranteed cash pot of at least 1,000, players will have a chance of winning a top prize of 500 each month.

Lottery team member, Di Clift, said: "As the lottery grows we intend to increase the prize money and our donations to local causes."

She added: "We also hope local businesses in Godalming will benefit from the increased footfall of those people calling in to support the lottery and buy tickets."

The lottery was launched by the Go-Godalming Association.
