Labour’s Exeter City Council, is proud of its work in supporting communities and local good causes. Its work it has been doing for many years and included a range of different grant schemes over the years. This is getting increasingly difficult against the Government’s ongoing cuts to the public sector including the council.
The Exeter Community Lottery is one of the initiatives introduced by the council to address the challenges it faces in supporting local charities, community groups, and voluntary organisations, who themselves are facing increasingly difficult times.
Cllr Martin Pearce, Lead Councillor for Communities, said:
“The money raised by the Exeter Community Lottery is going to make a lot of difference to grassroots good causes. I would encourage all charities and community groups to sign up and start fundraising with our lottery.
“Councils around the country have found that launching community lotteries is a great way of raising funds for good causes, who do so much great work in our communities, and I know it will be a big success in Exeter.”
The Exeter Community Lottery shows Labours commitment to support those who make a difference in our communities and in people’s lives. We are ensuring that the council is providing a platform for local good causes to raise funds and continue their essential work in the community.
By participating in the Exeter Community Lottery, members of the public can help the Labour-led council’s efforts to contribute to the ongoing work of local charities, community groups, and voluntary organisations.
A guaranteed 60% of ticket sales will go to support local groups which make a real difference to people and to Exeter’s communities.
Participating will help contribute to building a stronger, more vibrant, and more inclusive community in Exeter.
