Anna Pugh, Manager for West Norfolk Deaf Association who have raised over £7,000 from the local lottery, said: “As a local charity, West Norfolk Deaf Association is dependent on the generosity of donors and fundraisers like West Norfolk Wins to continue our work with deaf children, adults and elders, and people with acquired hearing difficulties in west Norfolk. We are particularly fundraising to support the first ever UK Deaf Swimming School, led by a Deaf Swimming Coach, our CHAT (Conversation, Hearing aids and Tea) Clubs for isolated older people in the community, and our Coffee Mornings for BSL users.
Stuart Dark, MBE, Leader of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk said: “Good causes not only benefit from receiving 50% of the profits from ticket sales from their page, they also receive a host of marketing materials as well as their own West Norfolk Wins Lottery web page. If you are a local not-for-profit group looking to diversify your fundraising income in a fun and effective way or you know of a PTA, sports club, or other charity that is looking for a sustainable way to raise funds, please visit the West Norfolk Wins website.”
