What happens when all 300 places are taken?
Initially we are only offering 300 places on a first come, first served basis. However we anticipate that we will create a second and third “300 club lottery” and we will allocate you a number from one of these and at this point process your payment.

How will the 300 club lottery help raise funds for Oldham Community Radio?
Each week the 300 club lottery will pay out £150 in prizes, additionally there are some small administrative costs in running the lottery, such as postage and lottery licence costs. The remaining proceeds from the lottery will be used to help fund the regular running costs of Oldham Community Radio 99.7fm.

Why does Oldham Community Radio need to raise funds?
Oldham Community Radio, like the other 240 community radio stations around the UK is an independent not for profit organisation operated and influenced by the communities they serve. We are different to the BBC and Commercial radio stations. Community Radio Stations receive no money from the licence fee and are restricted in their commercial activities. Oldham Community Radio has received a 40% reduction in it’s grant funding for 2012/13 meaning we need to raise more funds to maintain the service.

The Oldham Community Radio 300 Club Lottery is registered with Oldham Council as a small society lottery.
Lottery registration number LOT0126. Promoter: D.McGealy
