12 Months after the first draw was made live on IW Radio, the three independent lifeboat stations are extremely pleased to announce that the Independent Lifeboat Lotto has - in its first year - made £36,000 for the units based at Ryde, Freshwater and Sandown.
Thanks to the support and generosity of Islanders the lifeboat stations now have a steady, increasing amount that they receive every four weeks, helping with operational running costs and larger items of equipment that need to be purchased.

The lotto costs just over £8 a month.
