The NBBC Borough Lottery team would like to say a big thank you to all of those who attended the Borough Lottery 1st birthday gathering yesterday.

Representatives from a number of good causes across the Borough were in attendance and the setting provided a great platform for networking, as well as a chance to meet the new cuddly Lottery mascot of course!

So far 73 good causes have signed up for the Borough Lottery and a whopping £29,000 has been raised for good causes in the first year of operation.

Attendees were able to collaborate, and the sharing of ideas provided our Lottery team with useful observations which will enable them to introduce future enhancements to the existing service.

Following a year of operation we are now in a position to launch our Love Your Community grant scheme, this will allow community and voluntary organisations to submit an application for funds up to £1,000.

Cllr Julie Jackson, Leader of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council said:

“Thank you so much to all of those who attended our First Birthday celebration get together yesterday, the gathering proved to be a huge success with several representatives from good causes attending.

Our grant scheme introduction was also met with encouraging praise and I look forward to seeing this initiative flourish in the coming months.”
