Pudsey Pound proves a popular draw to support town trade

A new Pudsey lottery is proving a popular draw as it looks to support businesses looking to bounce back following lockdown and encourage people to shop local.

Almost £1,000 worth of tickets were sold for the first draw, which was held outside Ison Harrison Solicitors on Lidget Hill yesterday.

Pudsey Business Network Forum, which was revamped last year to support businesses in the town, is pioneering the Pudsey Lottery, which will pay out in Pudsey Pounds to be spent in local shops, the town’s market and businesses.

At the first draw, forum chair Cllr Trish Smith (Cons, Pudsey) said 21 shops and businesses had been selling the tickets. She added:

“The aim of this is to protect our shops and businesses and protect our high street.

“Considering we only launched on 9th July, and some businesses opened up even later than that, it’s been an excellent start! Thank you to every single person who has supported this initiative so that we can help to safeguard our shops, market and businesses.

“This is all about the local community and I’m pleased how many people have taken part in the first draw.”

Prizes are 80% of the overall pot.

Cllr Smith thanked everyone who has supported in any way, special thanks to Ison Harrison for hosting the event, to Balloon Bear for the display, and to Black Mouse for the champagne. She also thanked all the sub-committee members, Tom at PDS Windows for filming, Kudu Printers, Topstitch, Dan Pearce, Linley & Simpsons and Lisa Farrar for attending.
