Join us at the Swindon Lottery (and nominate The Kelly Foundation)
The Swindon Lottery was created in 2019 by Swindon Borough Council to support community causes in the local area. Swindon Community Lottery operates on the principle of raising money in the community, for the community. They empower local good causes to raise money in a fun and effective way.
In a time of shrinking budgets and rising need in the community, Swindon Lottery enables local people to nominate their local good cause and support that good cause.
A ticket for the 'Local Lottery' costs just £1 a week and 60p will go directly to local good causes, 50% to your nominated charity and 10% distributed to charities more widely. The grand prize is £25000 and if you match all 6 numbers you win the jackpot.
If you want to help our work at the Kelly Foundation go to swindonlottery.co.uk, click on PLAY THE LOTTERY, type The Kelly Foundation into the search box, click on BUY TICKETS, then fill in your details on the simple form, (you can be a SUPPORTER, A HERO or a PATRON dependent on your weekly ticket generosity), then proceed to BUY TICKETS and either pay for all, or complete a direct debit for a regular weekly entry.

Become an Ambassador and help tackle the growing epidemic of poor mental health locally.
Do you share our vision, that anyone suffering from acute anxiety or depression should get the same level of attention and support as one does with a physical illness? That just prescriptions for anti-depressants are not the whole answer? Then you probably have what it takes to become a charity Ambassador for The Kelly Foundation.
We are looking for friends and supporters to become volunteer Ambassadors. We want to form a network of supporters across the town, who can act as ambassadors for the charity by becoming the face of The Kelly Foundation in their communities and workplaces.
From raising awareness of how we are progressing to organising fundraising events and encouraging people to volunteer at one of our projects, Ambassadors are a vital source of support for our work.
There are many ways that you can support us as an Ambassador. You could volunteer at one of our events, consider fundraising, generally raise awareness or of course support us in person at events by selling tickets and answering questions.
You will enjoy the feel-good factor of giving something back and helping to better the lives of others.
To become an Ambassador, just contact us using the Contact link on the main menu above and we'll take care of the rest.
It would be great if you might choose to arrange any kind of sponsored event '4 Kelly'.
Coffee mornings are good fun and of course baking is extremely popular. How about a golf day?
If you are interested in arranging an event, then please use the Contact link in the main menu above.
