The first year of operation for the Portsmouth Lottery has been a bit of a corker.

You can get an idea of what we've achieved together here. Share it with your friends and supporters to help them see what a difference the lottery can make.

We smashed the 100k barrier for ticket sales, saw more than 150 good causes sign up to take part and celebrated with our first big winner, who took home £2000 at the end of August.

More importantly, over £70,000 is making its way - in one form or another - to charities, good causes and not-for-profits making a difference to the people of Portsmouth.

Together we've helped fund everything from drama sessions for children with Downs Syndrome, to helping secure the future of Chinese cultural activities in the city, to setting up a Wolf Medicine programme to support people in recovery.

Our success of our first year has been down to you - our registered good causes and generous supporters. So a great big thank you - and here's to another fantastic year!
