Jersey's first ever Sports Lottery launches today.

It aims to raise funds for local sporting clubs and organisations which struggle to meet the costs of travel and accommodation when competing outside of the island.

Organisers say sport in the island "needs funding to stay vibrant and maintain competitive standards".

Lottery tickets cost £150 each, with a top prize of £250,000 and further cash prizes worth a total of £50,000 to be won.

Five thousand tickets will go on sale today, with the draw taking place on May 18th.

Tickets can be purchased from Jersey Rugby Club and Jersey Pearl outlets in St Helier, St Ouen, Gorey and Jersey Airport; also directly from participating sports.
