REDDITCH Community Lottery is celebrating its second birthday this month, after supporting 34 good causes since its launch.

Over £20,000 has been raised for the community with more than 760 winning tickets.

Players have received a variety of prizes including cash, monthly fruit and vegetable deliveries, £1,000 vouchers for Curry’s PC World and John Lewis and even a holiday.

Council leader, Cllr Matt Dormer, said: “I am proud that the Redditch Community Lottery has been able to help so many good causes this year, and with no real end in sight for the pandemic, it’s good to know that this extra support has been invaluable to those who have signed up.

“Over the next year I would love to see more groups signing up to be a part of our lottery which is completely free and easy to join and offers additional support with marketing.

“We could all do with some good news right now, so why not buy a ticket, support your local Good Cause and be in with a chance of winning £25k?”

To play tickets cost £1 with 50p going directly to the case of the players choice and a further 10 per cent going to the community fund, which is used to support other good causes.

Karen Martin, from Inspire Community Training, said: “As an extremely small, voluntary sector organisation, the lottery fund has really helped us. There have been times, especially over COVID that we have struggled to pay a bill and then I’ve checked our bank, expecting the worst, only to find that a payment has come in from the lottery and covered it!”
