Pictured above is Lesley Barr (right) being given her £336 Kirknewton Community Lottery cheque from Kirknewton Community Development Trust Fundraising Officer Debbie Douglas. Congratulations Lesley.
The weekly Kirknewton Community Lottery was drawn on 1st October after three weeks of ticket sales. The aim is to raise funds for local groups and winners get 50% of the total raised. Tickets can be purchased for £1 each from Festival Stores or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details to set up a monthly standing order.
The second draw was won by local Tracy Troy with ticket 857 who received £236. A fabulous total of £472 was raised after only one week of ticket sales
After two weeks the Kirknewton community have been able to pay £260 for a new easel for the Kirknewton Community Playgroup, which is a terrific achievement.
If you are a local community group looking for funds then e mail email@example.com giving your name, group, what you are looking for and how much is it going to cost.
