This week’s winning Lotto numbers are 05 – 11 – 19 – 24.
There was no Jackpot winner and five 3-number £20 winners: Mary Squeak, Eunan Kelly, Aimee Steele, B McFadden & Katriona Stockman. Next week the Jackpot rises to £5,300.
As always, thanks to everyone who regularly supports us with the Club Lotto. This is our main fundraising effort and is essentially our lifeblood income to help us fund all of our teams running costs, and to also support many of our strategic development projects. Whilst the Lotto remains a strong contributor for us we know that it can and should do better – parts of our town are no longer served by regular collectors, and we’d like to change this. If you think you can help, either as a collector or a coordinator of our Lotto, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please give your name to any of the Executive Committee.
