Western Gaels Annual Lotto
Our Annual Club Lotto memberships are due for renewal at the end of March so each member by now should have received their renewal packs in the past week so we would hope for each and every member’s continued support for the coming year. It is the main income generator on an annual basis for our club and we believe its a good value membership that gets you 3 chances to win each and every week. Your local lotto club rep will be calling to each member over the next couple of weeks to hopefully renew your membership for 2016.
A special draw for all renewed annual ticket holders will take place on Saturday 2nd April with 5 €100 cash prizes up for grabs.
The club extends its thanks to all our members who have renewed their membership already. It is very much appreciated.
