Community Lottery Update

The Basingstoke & Deane Community Lottery is proving to be a WIN WIN for everyone!

Since the lottery began in November, we have seen upwards of 15-25 winners per week. These winners have taken home free tickets and cash prizes! The cash prizes are always a favourite among our ticket holders for obvious reasons & we are over the moon to be able to say that large amounts are beginning to be won! We have now had three £250 winners. An incredible prize from the £1 weekly tickets. It’s great to see the luck leaning in favour of our players.

What makes us even prouder is seeing is the impact these tickets are already having on our community. The lottery is set to bring over £31,000 to the organisations in our community in the first year, every penny being extra special in the current times with the impact of Covid-19 taking its toll on the voluntary sector.

We have had a chance to speak to one of the lucky winners, Olivia, who’s ticket sales support The Voluntary Sports Council… read the interview below:

 

Why are you supporting your chosen good cause? -  

‘’My daughter is a high-level figure skater and the voluntary sport’s council have supported her and other athletes for many years. I wanted to find a way to support them.’’

 

Where did you hear about the lottery? -  

‘’Basingstoke voluntary sports council, shared on their social media .’’

 

What does winning mean to you? -  

‘’This has meant extra funding for my daughters training. Even though there are no ice rinks open to train in, we are trying to keep her busy with plenty of off ice training via zoom!’’

 

Would you recommend others to sign up to the lottery and why? 

‘’Yes, this is for local charities, ones that will probably impact us all at some stage.

I think it’s great that you can see your contribution to the local community.’’

 

We agree, thank you to our organisations promoting the lottery, together we can make a real impact in our community.
