Support Local Charities Through South Oxon Lottery

Over £100,000 raised by the SO Charitable Lottery has been used to support 81 voluntary and community sector organisations across South Oxfordshire.

The South Oxfordshire District Council scheme is a weekly lottery that benefits communities and organisations in the district by raising money for good causes.

Since its launch in 2018, the SO Charitable Lottery has distributed just over £100,000 to good causes in the district. In addition, £39,000 has also been raised so far in the SO Charitable Community Fund, £31,000 of which has been shared between all organisations selling 20 tickets or more a week, with more to be distributed in the coming months.

This year the lottery includes local charities, Riverside Counselling Services, Henley YMCA, The Chiltern Centre and the River & Rowing Museum.

Cllr Maggie Filipova-Rivers, Cabinet Member for Community Wellbeing at South Oxfordshire District Council said: “I’d like to thank the people who take part and support good causes in the South and encourage more good causes to join the scheme and residents to take part. The financial support local charities and voluntary groups receive allows them to continue their valuable work in our district supporting the most vulnerable people.”

Residents who take part in the lottery, can either support a charity or group of their choice or donate to the central community fund, these funds are distributed to local organisations and community initiatives which have a beneficial impact on the local community.
