Lottery celebrates birthday

The Havant Borough Community Lottery is celebrating its first birthday, and is marking the occasion by sharing thousands of pounds amongst community groups.


Havant Borough Council launched its lottery in 2018 with the first draw being announced on Saturday 7th April that year, and ever since has been a huge success for players and good causes across the borough.


More than 63,000 tickets have been sold in the first 12 months, raising £37,812 for good causes – that’s a total of 60% of every ticket going back to the community.


Tracey Wood, of Havant Borough Council, said: “We are proud to support the lottery and would encourage those who haven’t bought a ticket before to try it out.”


To play, or to sign up as a good cause, visit www.havantlottery.co.uk.


Groups from across the borough who have received money from the Havant Lottery Community Fund Grants are: Project 71, Havant & East Hants Mind, Stop Domestic Abuse, Waterlooville Events Team, Friends of Hermitage Stream, Stockheath Common Fireworks, and Dementia Friendly Havant.
