Community Lottery Update

The Winning Feeling…
Last week’s Community Lottery draw had 28 lucky winners, taking home the prizes available, including our huge cash prizes! Now is your chance to join…

We had a chance to catch up with Sue, our latest £250 winner, who is supporting the MS branch in Basingstoke. We asked her:

What made you join the Community Lottery? “I was diagnosed with MS in 2012 so wanted to support the society and this was a way to do that and still have a chance to win money”
What does the cash prize you won mean to you? “It means a lot! I have some money to put towards Christmas spending”
Would you recommend the lottery to others? “I would recommend it. This is a way to support local causes as well as giving people a chance to win a prize-better odds than the National Lottery”

Have the chance to support a cause close to your heart and win cash prizes too! Find out more: CLICK HERE
