About Hive Lotto

Hive Lotto was created by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council to take the red tape out of lottery fundraising, helping our community raise much-needed funds for the causes closest to their hearts.


5 top tips for recruiting Hive Lotto players


Top Tip #1: Set a target
Set yourself a target. This will help keep you focused and measure success. Your target could be weekly or monthly; it could aim to recruit 10% of your audience, or 10 people every week. Make it realistic for you. Follow our tips below to help you reach your goals.

Top Tip #2: Email
Send our ready-made email template to your email database. Use an eye-catching subject line and include a request for them to support you through Hive Lotto. Remember to include a link to your Hive Lotto page.

Top Tip #3: Link on your website
Put your lottery URL on your own website. That way your supporters can find your lottery page without you having to reach out to them.
