Good causes reap the benefits from our Community Lottery

Edition: Summer 2020

In September 2019 we set up the Horsham District Community lottery to help fund local good causes across the District.

The ethos of the scheme is all about benefiting charities, volunteer groups and not-for-profit organisations, enabling residents  to support their communities.

A flying start

We are delighted that this new community lottery has proved really popular with over 900 players and  77 community groups signed up, and over 1,800 tickets sold since  it launched.

Thanks to this level of interest the lottery is on target to raise £56,000 for local good causes.

We love the Horsham District Community Lottery because it lets our members play and creates a fun environment with the chance for them to win some cash!

The funds we have received from the lottery invested in vital equipment for our swimmers and also allow us to develop our coaching team who support our swimmers to reach their full potential.

As a small independent charity fundraising is key to our survival.  This lottery is great because it promotes our profile across the District, but also provides us with  an income stream that helps keep our vital services running.
