People are being encouraged to take part in a community lottery which will help Breckland-based groups and organisations raise much-needed funds.

Our Breckland Lottery provides a free platform for charities and not-for-profit organisations to raise awareness of their work and sell tickets to directly benefit their cause.

Tickets available to buy online from March 1 and players will be asked to choose one of the registered good causes to receive 50p of every £1 ticket they buy.

Organisations can increase the amount of money they receive through ticket sales.

A further 10p will go into a general funding pot which Breckland Council will release as grants.

The first draw will take place on March 31 and players stand a chance of winning up to £25,000.

Prize draws will be held weekly and tickets are only available to buy online.
