Second £2,000 winner for the Borough Lottery!
Published on Wednesday, 20th March 2019
This month saw another winner scoop £2000 in our Borough Lottery, making that the second big win in the Lottery’s first year of operation.
Angela Darvill was delighted to receive her prize and is very happy to see the benefits going to her chosen charity - Milby Nursery and Kids Club.
“Playing the Borough Lottery is an easy way to give back to the local community, I am so pleased that I have been able to support the Milby nursery and kids club though the lottery and to win £2000 has been a lovely surprise!”
“For anyone looking to find a way of supporting the local community the Borough Lottery is a great way to do it. Purchasing a ticket online is so easy and 50 pence of the £1 ticket price goes to your group of choice, which is wonderful.”
Nursery Manager, Rachel Gannaway said:
“Signing up as a good cause has provided a way to raise some much needed funds for the setting. The money raised so far is going towards purchasing a dodgeball kit for the kids club which will be a great way to encourage the children to be active whilst having fun.
“I would encourage other community groups across the Borough to sign up, it is so easy to do and in addition to receiving profits from ticket sales the collaboration also provides some great marketing opportunities.”
The Council’s Leader Cllr Julie Jackson congratulated the winners. She said:
“I am so happy to see another winner scoop a large prize in our Lottery. Alongside the chance to provide support to local charities and community organisations as well as the fantastic prizes on offer I would encourage people across the Borough to sign up.
“It is great to hear how the Lottery money is being spent and to see our local community benefitting from the generosity of local people.
“Thank you to everyone who has bought tickets, the generated income has helped so many deserving causes throughout the Borough.”
