We have just joined the Unity Lottery to help raise funds. The Unity Lottery, is already helping more than 250 charities raise money across the country and pays out thousands of pounds in prizes every week. People who play the lottery, which is run by Sterling Lotteries, based in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, pay £1 every week to receive a unique six digit number, with 50p of that going towards Colne Valley Railway Preservation Ltd A lottery draw takes place every week with prizes from £5 to £25,000 up for grabs
