It's Our 3rd Birthday!

09 September 2021

A massive THANK YOU to all the supporters and causes who have helped to raise over £161,000 of additional funds over the last three years for Harrogate district community groups, organisations and charities. This is a huge achievement.


First launched in September 2018, THE LOCAL LOTTO is proudly supporting 108 local good causes and counting! A community initiative brought to you by the people and for the people of the Harrogate district, it enables local not-for-profit groups and charities to diversify their fundraising income and raise unlimited funds year-round online - at no additional cost. 


Sounds too good to be true? Here's what Ripon Community Link, a Good Cause raising funds with THE LOCAL LOTTO has to say, “Ripon Community Link is proud to be a Lotto beneficiary. We benefit monthly from the Charity Supporters who have chosen us, this gives a regular, reliable income stream when charitable income can be erratic, especially in such turbulent times. We have also been extremely fortunate to benefit from THE LOCAL FUND to help us develop our services for individuals with Learning Disability. The administration is efficient and user friendly and important an easy platform for donors to use- thankyou!”

A supporter of Almscliffe Villages Community Association, who recently won £250, had this to say about THE LOCAL LOTTO: "Living in Almscliffe, I joined THE LOCAL LOTTO to help provide the much needed funds to make our community better. Having had a few wins this being my biggest, makes it even better especially over summer holidays - extra treats for my girls. I would recommend joining THE LOCAL LOTTO it really does help to make the community- bring much-needed funds to make our area even better".
