For many, buying a Boro Jackpot ticket on the way to the ground had become part of their routine on a matchday.

Over the years it has had different titles, such as the Boro Lotto and half-time draw, but it has always been best known as the Boro Jackpot.

As well as the chance to win a cash prize and two other prizes each game, each ticket bought is worth something to you and to the MFC Foundation.

To be able to continue our work in our communities, your communities, we’re no different to any other charity and every time you spend £1 on a ticket you can do so knowing you’re playing your part.

But now, in association with Al Forno’s in Ingleby Barwick, each and every ticket bought brings with it a free dessert with every main meal bought in their restaurant.

Al Forno’s are a long-standing and much-valued supporter of the work we do, with the Foundation’s Business Development Manager Paul Shepherd commenting: “We are very grateful to Al Forno’s for their continued support. As well as this offer for fans who buy a Jackpot ticket, they have donated £1,000 to us as well.

“This means that everybody gets something from the purchase of each and every ticket sold and the donation helps us in many ways.

“There’s the chance to win cash and other prizes, but if you’re number doesn’t come out in the draw, then you’re still a winner with a free desert – and who doesn’t like a free pudding?”

The draw results will be shown on the big screen at the Riverside during the half-time interval.
