Wyre Forest Lottery - Winning in the community

Winning In The Community

13 August 2021

In a survey conducted in October 2020 84% of good causes said that COVID-19 was having a negative impact on their fundraising with 55% stating that, apart from their lottery, they had been unable to continue ANY form of fundraising. 97% of good causes expected the pandemic to have an impact on their fundraising for at least the next 6 months and 78% of good causes said that their lottery helped keep funds coming in during the pandemic.

Since launching in November 2020 almost £7000 has been won and over £28,000 has been raised for the local community. The most recent win to celebrate is from the weekend, where Stephanie Thomas, a lucky supporter of 'Wyre Forest Nightstop and Mediation Scheme' won £250!


“I’m delighted to have won £250. I have taken part in the Wyre Forest Community Lottery since it launched in October and in this week’s draw I supported Wyre Forest Nightstop and Mediation. The charity means a lot to me as they work tirelessly to prevent youth homelessness.
