03/12/19: Swaffham Town FC win the lottery!

Swaffham Town FC  have found their winning lottery numbers come up in a new Our Breckland Lottery Community Fund initiative, run by Breckland Council, resulting in a £1000 grant to help replace fencing at this famous Norfolk club which was founded in 1892.

Our Breckland Lottery Community Fund is offering grants to sporting groups, charities and community groups who provide vital services to the community and are signed up to Our Breckland lottery. £10,000 of funding is available as grants of £250, £500 and £1,000 to groups who recruit new supporters onto Our Breckland Lottery scheme. Swaffham Town FC have successfully recruited 30 new players for Our Breckland Lottery, which made them eligible for a £1000 grant.

Our Breckland Lottery has been operating since April 2018, with 60p in every £1 ticket purchased going towards supporting a local Breckland charity, sporting association or community group.

Cllr Mark Robinson, Executive Member for Community, Leisure and Culture commented "Our Breckland Lottery is a fantastic opportunity for any sporting club, charity or community group operating in Breckland to raise much needed funds. Why not make it your new year's resolution to sign up for an Our Breckland lottery ticket and support a local group like Swaffham Town FC or why not get your local group involved and help raise funds for the community and good causes."
