The Stroud District Lucky Severn Community Lottery is celebrating its first £2,000 win.
Since launching, more than 650 prizes have been won and almost £55,000 has been raised for the local community.
Lucky Severn Community Lottery is designed to help local not-for-profits diversify their fundraising streams and enable year-round fundraising in a safe, fun and effective way.
There are more than 75 registered causes that can be helped with a ticket purchase. The chosen cause will receive 60% of the £1 ticket with an additional 10% going to further support the local community.
The weekly prizes range from 3 free tickets to £25,000, providing a great opportunity to win a large amount of money as well as helping the local community.
This week there were six cash winners, four of which won £25, one with £250 and the top prize winner with £2,000. These winners were supporting a variety of good causes including: Nailsworth Youth Club, Stroud Valleys Project, Coram Life Education Gloucestershire (CLEG) and The Keepers - Wotton Area Community Hub. The two top prize winners were both supporting the Community Fund, the proceeds of this fund support a varied selection of good causes across the district.
Stroud District Council Leader Doina Cornell, said “I would like to congratulate the winners this week and thank them for playing the Lucky Severn Community Lottery. The lottery has been a great success so far and we are very pleased to see so many people getting involved, whether that be players or good causes.
“It is important that we give back to not-for-profit organisations after the difficult year they have had and provide them with new fundraising opportunities. We are encouraging those that haven’t already to sign up to play and support your community whilst being in with the chance of winning some cash!”
