FUNDRAISING NEWS: Lotto winner makes plans for rival draw

A lottery winner is planning to launch a web-based alternative to the National Lottery, that will only support charities working with life-threatening illnesses.

Lee Taylor-Ryan won £6.5m on the Lottery in 1995, and became one of its more high-profile winners when he was jailed for nine months for handling stolen cars just months later. His proposed lottery will use the numbers drawn by Camelot, and players will be asked to pay for a year's play in advance, with a minimum stake of £52.

Whether his lottery will be regulated by the Gaming Board for Great Britain depends on its income exceeding £20,000.
