VIKINGS CLUB LOTTERY

Widnes Vikings have launched a new and improved club lottery system, aimed at helping support the delivery of a number of programmes that provide incredible opportunities for all regardless of age, gender and ability.

Each year, the club and the Vikings Sports Foundation run a whole range of inclusive initiatives that give people from our community the chance to better themselves physically and also improve their mental fitness.

Our aim of attracting new people to the sport of Rugby League is evident through the delivery of schools, touch and walking rugby programmes, while we have also increased participation in the sport from within the town through the growth of our Womens team.

Learning Disability Rugby League also gives people who have always dreamt of pulling on the Vikings colours a chance to fulfill that ambition by removing the barriers that had once prevented this from happening. Our LD Super League team have taken part in festivals across the country because of this, which even included being a part of the launch event at the 2019 Magic Weekend, where they had the chance to play at the iconic venue of Anfield.

Each month we also deliver a dementia support group named Chemics Café, using the medium of Rugby League to support those living with dementia and their loved ones, providing enjoyable physical activities and helping them to reconnect with their fondest memories of Widnes Vikings.

Integral to the club is the production of homegrown players for the first team squad. Our pathway, which encompasses our Development Squad, Scholarship and Academy programmes, all strive to develop the next generation of Widnes Vikings players.

For just £4.34 a month, which equates to £1 a week, you can support all of the above projects and more by joining our fantastic lottery system and be in with a chance of winning one of 35 guaranteed prizes. There will be a weekly jackpot of £1,000 up for grabs, with a £100 rollover also available that can rise up to £5,000!

60% of all money raised will go towards supporting our Community and Pathway programmes, with 25% payable in winners’ prizes and 15% covering the cost of the administration of the lottery system.
