Get tickets for Fareham Community Lottery and help support good causes

Fareham Borough Council is delighted to announce that it has awarded the charity, One Community, the funding it needs to launch a new Community Lottery.

This exciting new lottery will not only provide residents with the chance to win cash prizes but will also provide a vital source of income for valued charities and community groups based in Fareham, many of which have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Within 48 hours of starting registration for good causes, One Community has already signed up a wide range of local charities and community groups, which will start receiving funds from the lottery after the first draw on the 13 March 2021. These include:

The number of good causes supported by the lottery is expected to grow considerably over the next weeks and months, providing charities and community organisations the opportunity to receive 40 percent of each £1 ticket purchased.

Tickets for the March draw will be available from 8 February and residents who buy tickets will not only be in with a chance of winning cash prizes but they can also decide which good causes their tickets will benefit by selecting a charity for every ticket purchased.  

Executive Member for Leisure and Community at Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Sue Bell said: “I am delighted that so many charities have already signed up to be part of the Community Lottery.  They represent a wide range of good causes which benefit every generation of our community as well as providing some with a vital lifeline for help and support. This is exactly what the lottery was designed for and I hope that Fareham residents will show their support when tickets are available from early February.”

Chief Executive of One Community, Jean Roberts-Jones added: “In these challenging times it is exciting to be able to offer a positive, simple to access new service for local groups to increase their income and for local people to support such good causes”

Community and voluntary sector organisations can register as a good cause by contacting info@1community.org.uk. Further information about One Community can be found at www.fareham.gov.uk/leisure/community/onecommunity.aspx
