REDDITCH Community Lottery (RCL) has raised nearly £9,000 for the local community since its launch 12 months ago.

The borough council-run initiative has supported 30 good causes in that time.

Fifty per cent of every £1 ticket sold goes directly to the player’s chosen charitable group.

A further 10 per cent goes into the community fund, which is then spread across other groups.

VCS and charity organisations can nominate themselves, for free, to be added to the list of good causes.

Council leader Coun Matt Dormer said: “I am proud that the RCL has been able to help so many, especially given what an unusual year it has been.

“We have seen 30 good causes sign up to the scheme already and would love to see a lot more take part as we head into the second year.

“Why not buy a ticket, support your local good cause and be in with a chance of winning £25,000?”

RCL players having received a multitude of prizes including free tickets, monthly fruit and veg home deliveries for a year, Fitbit and Google Nest mini bundles and £100 worth of B&Q vouchers.

And there is of course cash prizes up to the £25,000 jackpot.

Players who enter before February 27 will be in with the chance of winning Etsy gift vouchers worth £100 each.

The lucky winners will also bank their supported charity a £100 cash donation in the process.
