A village resident has won a prize in the weekly South Oxfordshire Charitable Lottery which started a few weeks ago. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, won £25 with his £1 ticket. For each ticket he purchases, 50p goes to his nominated charity The Friends of St Mary’s, the village group that helps with the upkeep of the fabric of the church.
Asked what he plans to do with his winnings, the man said “I shall use it to purchase another five tickets for each of next month’s weekly draws. That way I have a chance of winning the top £25,000 prize.”
Tickets are purchased via the SO Charitable Lottery website:
