Harrow Wins: New Community Lottery

X

Harrow Wins, a new and exciting community lottery, with a jackpot of £25,000 and main focus to support good causes is coming soon.

Lead by Harrow Council in partnership with various voluntary organisations, it’s open to everyone in the community who help make a difference to Harrow and our residents. So whether you’re a local charity, sports club, project, scout or cadet organisation – Harrow Wins can help you with funding through the sale of tickets. It’s £1 a ticket and 50% of it will go to a chosen cause and 10% to a central fund – Harrow Giving supporting all good causes in Harrow.

Come along to the ‘good causes’ launch event on 6 March at Young Harrow Foundation to find out more information. You can sign up on the day where there will be two sessions - the first at 4pm and a second at 5.30pm.

Cllr Sue Anderson, Portfolio Holder for Community Engagement & Accessibility, said:~

 “Due to cuts in funding the council can no longer afford to run a traditional grants programme for local good causes, but fundraising is being supported in different ways, the latest being our new community lottery. The more organisations that come on board, the more people will take part with better results for everyone, so I would encourage local groups looking for a no-cost fundraising opportunity to sign up as soon as possible.”

Harrow Wins is a joint partnership with Harrow Council, Harrow Community Action, Voluntary Action Harrow, Young Harrow Foundation and the Voluntary Sector Forum.

The ‘good causes’ launch event takes places on Wednesday 6 March at Young Harrow Foundation, 23 Village Way E, Harrow HA2 7LX.
