We are very pleased to announce the full results for the very first SO45 Online Community Giving Lottery which took place on Christmas Eve at The Langley Tavern.

The Winners

We managed to generate £851 as a cash prize for the lucky cash  winner Justine Harnett and £851 for the local good cause winner, The Waterside Cancer Support Centre. Thanks to everyone that bought a ticket. £130 was kept back to pay for January’s tickets.

Tickets for the January lottery are now on sale and the draw will on January 28th.

We have ordered 1500 tickets for the January draw and it would be great to sell out and pay out £1500 to one of our neighbours and £1500 to this month’s great local cause, the Hythe & Waterside Dementia Friendly Group.

If we all work together as a local community and get as many of you as possible buying at least one £2 ticket a month you can all help to generate much needed funds for the many great local causes we want to support.

Please help us spread the word, tell your friends and family, the draw is open to everyone over the age of 16.
