The brand new West Norfolk Wins lottery is off to a great start. 1231 tickets were sold for the first draw, and 50 good causes were signed up to potentially benefit.
The first lottery draw also included a prize draw for a 50" TV sponsored by homes developer Lovell and a sound bar sponsored by retailer Hughes.
The winner, Mrs Angela Schrier, from Terrington, said: "When I heard that I had won the TV and sound bar it absolutely made my day. I would never be able to afford such expensive items, so this is something that me and my three boys will get a lot of pleasure from. I have never won anything like this before, so I am ridiculously excited.
"I think the lottery is a great way to support local good causes, which was my main reason for playing. Getting something back is just the icing on the cake. Thank you to the sponsors who donated this prize."
The first draw also saw two winners of £25 prizes and numerous winners of free tickets.
Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, deputy leader and cabinet member for Culture, Heritage and Health at the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk, said: "We are really pleased with the way the lottery is going. Ticket sales are now at 1359 which is excellent news. If this continues, the total amount raised in the first year for local good causes will be over £42,000 which is excellent news. 52 charities are now signed up and busy promoting the lottery to their supporters."
