The Guildford Community Lottery hit a new benchmark this week as the 100th local good cause signed up to raise funds.

The weekly lottery has been a huge success since it started in December, with over 1,700 weekly tickets being purchased, generating an expected £53,000 for good causes this year alone.  

James Whiteman, Managing Director of Guildford Borough Council says: "The Guildford Community Lottery has been a real success and we are really happy to see all of these local good causes benefitting. Local charities, community groups, sports and arts clubs, schools, scouts and guides are all getting involved. It's a really great way for local causes to raise money and engage their members and supporters."  

To mark the recent milestone, anyone registering to play the lottery to support their chosen good cause by Saturday 11 May will be entered into a draw for a free family ticket to the Surrey County Show, as well as being in with a chance of winning £25,000 in the weekly draws.
