Eastbourne Local Lottery awards £23,000 to local groups

Around 100 good causes are sharing £23,000 thanks to Eastbourne Local Lottery's Community Fund.

The money has been accrued through ticket sales over the last year from players who opt to support Eastbourne Lottery Community Fund rather than a specific good cause. 

Many charities and good causes signed up to the local lottery have received a payout from this fund, topping up their income raised from ticket sales by players who nominate them directly. 

Councillor Daniel Butcher, Cabinet Member for Finance, said: "Eastbourne Local Lottery has been operating for six years and over that time hundreds of local charities and organisations have benefitted from it.

"With 60p out of every pound spent by players going towards local good causes, the local lottery has proved a real success not only for lucky winners but for all the fundraising groups taking part."

Among the good causes that has received money from the Community Fund is East Sussex Young Carers, which supports young people aged from five to 18 who care for a family member with a long-term illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse issues.

Also receiving funds is WayfinderWoman which helps women find better lives by building their self-confidence and skill sets to help them transform their lives.

Happy Paws Puppy Rescue, which saves around 300 dogs every year from devastating situations across Europe, is another beneficiary of the Community Fund.
