The Community Fund - applications now open!

Good causes who are raising funds through the West Berkshire Lottery can now apply for a grant through the community fund!

Since the West Berkshire Lottery was launched in March 2019, 50p from every £1 ticket sold has gone directly to local good causes with a further 10p going into the fund.

The community fund allows one-off grants to be made to the lottery causes in addition to their direct fundraising and will be awarded by an independent panel on behalf of West Berkshire Council.

Successful applicants will be announced before December 20th - just in time for Christmas!

You can continue to raise money for the community fund by purchasing lottery tickets. The lottery looks set to raise almost £60,000 in the first year for local good causes and the community fund currently stands at just under £6,000.

To buy tickets www.westberkshirelottery.co.uk or call 01635 597 111.

Applications are now open for good causes who are participants in the West Berkshire Lottery and have sold ten or more tickets per week over the preceding ten weeks of play, up to the closing date for applications. Please complete the application form by following this link:
