Coronavirus Update – Temporary reduction in NYCDA Weekly Draw prize fund

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and its adverse effects on membership numbers, the development association has taken the step to temporarily reduce the NYCDA Weekly Draw prize fund to £1275. This will be broken down in the following way - £1000 Jackpot, £100, £50, £25 and 10 x £10 prizes The wellbeing of all involved is critically important at this time, as is our desire to ensure we can continue to raise funds for all our beneficiaries at this difficult time. The prize fund will be reviewed once government guidelines allow us, our affiliates and beneficiaries to operate as normal once more. Thank you for support and understanding at this difficult time.
