Lucky day for lottery calendar £1k winner

-

A lucky local resident from Perth won the £1000 calendar lottery prize.

The successful annual Lottery Calendar project is part of the club’s fundraisin­g and has generated funds in excess of £90,000 since its inception with disburseme­nts to numerous worthwhile charitable causes, both locally and internatio­nally.

The Rotary Club of Perth said it is“extremely grateful to our competitiv­e amateur photograph­ers, business sponsors, printers, partners, not forgetting the generous support from the general public who have purchased our Lottery Calendar”.

This year’s prize winner was drawn by the Rotary’s district governor Alistair Robb.

Club president Chris Kirk said: “COVID has had a huge impact on our ability to fundraise for the many important local deserving charities that we have been able to support in past years.

“Furthermor­e, the production loss of the 2021 calendar is a real blow to us but we are determined that once things return to a degree of normality we’ll be looking to step up our efforts again.”
