You will see from the outcomes sheet we have had a great start to growing local giving through THE LOCAL LOTTO over the last 12 months, generating just under £50,000 of additional funds to support community activity and services across the Harrogate district, which is phenomenal.
Through the support of Harrogate District residents, over £18,000 of the funds raised will go into THE LOCAL FUND and will provide a further funding opportunity to local groups across the district who may not be using the LOTTO to generate funds to apply for a small grant of up to £3,000.
The success of the last year is a tribute to the partners we work with on a regular basis. They have endorsed and championed the concept of having a community lottery for the Harrogate district from the start. The wider voluntary and community sector have supported our joint ambitions to grow sustainable local giving across the Harrogate District. Of course none of this would have been possible without the wider community who have supported the local groups and charities through purchasing lottery tickets, encouraging others to play or sign up their good cause and through indirectly supporting the community fund which offers further opportunities to local groups.
We hope that the second year is as successful as the first. Together we can continue to help sustain and support the amazing work voluntary and community groups and organisations do across our district. There are further opportunities to help even more groups and there is more to give to help preserve and grow our active communities.
