Community Lottery Tickets Available from Monday

Lottery tickets for the first new Fareham Community Lottery draw will be on sale from Monday 8 February.

Set up by One Community, this new Community Lottery gives residents a chance to win cash prizes of up to £25,000 but will also provide a vital source of income for good causes across the Borough.  To date, more than 55 have registered to take part already.

For every £1 ticket purchased 40p will go to the charity or community organisation of choice – ticket buyers can choose who they want their donation to go to when buying their ticket. 

Executive Member for Leisure and Community at Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Sue Bell said: “I am so pleased that our Community Lottery tickets will be available to buy from Monday and would like to thank One Community for their efforts in setting it up.  With over fifty-five good causes now registered to benefit from the scheme, every ticket purchased will contribute to the fantastic work they do across our Borough. I sincerely hope that Fareham residents will show their support once tickets go on sale.”

Chief Executive of One Community, Jean Roberts-Jones added: “This Community Lottery has been made possible by the hard work of so many people, so I am thrilled to see it launch early next week. This scheme will help provide vital support to good causes which have been hard hit by the pandemic and it’s lovely to be able to offer positive, simple way for them to increase their income and continue to support people in every generation from our local area.”

The first draw will take place on 13 March 2021.
