The first ever jackpot winner of Breckland Council’s Our Breckland Lottery has claimed the price of £25,000.

The player, from Watton, who wishes to remain anonymous, matched all six numbers on their £1 ticket.

The council set up the community lottery in March 2018 as a way to raise the profile of community groups, sports teams and charities, who can be financially supported by lottery players.

For every £1 ticket bought, 50p goes direct to the player's chosen charity.

The player was supporting the Wayland Partnership Development Trust. They said they will be sharing some of the winnings among other charities before taking a dream long-distance holiday to see relatives abroad.

Councillor Mark Robinson said: "I'm really pleased for them, but of course the real winners are our local good causes who are benefiting from over £40,000 raised since we launched last year."
