Frome Community Lottery

Frome Community Lottery was set up in order to help develop community facilities for  the people of Frome and the surrounding villages. It does this by giving grants to local organisations and we are happy to say that Young People Frome has received a grant this year.  All the money we are able to give as grants comes directly from the local people who have joined the community lottery. With a chance to win prizes of up to £25,000, members pay a weekly £1 stake of which 50% comes straight back to Frome to spend on local projects. Please help us by joining the Lottery using the link below or by picking up a form from Frome Library.
