Dorset Council asks local residents, community groups and local charities for their opinion on proposing a community lottery for local charitable purposes in the Dorset Council area.

To determine if there is a willingness to do so, the Council asks people to complete a quick online survey. The process takes only five minutes. A spokesman for the council said: "Please note that there is still no need to decide on a community lottery. We just want to measure people's thoughts (good and bad) about having one. "

The poll will be live from Thursday, September 12th, midnight and ends on Sunday, October 13th, at 4:00 pm.
