Our Breckland Lottery was created in 2018 by Breckland Council. Set up to support community projects in the local area, Our Breckland Lottery operates on the principle of raising money within the community for the community, empowering local good causes to raise money in a fun and effective way.

In a time of shrinking budgets and increased community need, Our Breckland Lottery enables people to support the causes they care most about, helping good causes to connect with their supporters.

A ticket for Our Breckland Lottery costs £1 a week and 60p will go directly to good causes!
