Community groups in Breckland are being offered the chance to receive grants from a special £10,000 pot.
Groups which are signed up to the Our Breckland Lottery Community Fund will be eligible to access grants of £250, £500 or £1,000, depending on the number of new supporters of the lottery they can recruit over the next few months.

Since its launch in March 2018, the Our Breckland Lottery has raised just under £40,000 for local charities and community groups thanks to tickets purchased by the community.
The new initiative has been launched to celebrate Volunteers Week, which is taking place from June 1 to June 7.
Councillor Mark Robinson, executive member for community, Leisure and Culture at Breckland Council, said: "The money raised through the lottery in its inaugural year has already made such a big difference to local groups and we're delighted to offer this extra boost to good causes, who often rely heavily on the support of volunteers."
