Horley Hand-Out also hosts regular free giveaways to help promote local business through their Facebook page.

Joe Luxford, the co-director of Horley Hand-Out said: “I was standing in a queue at the newsagents and was shocked at the amount of lottery tickets and scratchcards a customer purchased.

“It got me thinking that there must be a better way of not only increasing the customers chance of winning, but also seeing some of that money handed over, benefit the local community.

“Therefore, our customers win, even if they don’t win the jackpot.”

Entries for the competition are growing each week.

The first draw on Friday, April 2 received over 500 entries and the winner received a cash prize of £500.

Joe added: “Our jackpot prize is all self generated. The more people we can get on board, the bigger cash prizes can be distributed.

“As we progress, we aim to have more competitions open to our customers.”

The Horley Hand-Out team have also been busy giving back to the local community.

Joe and fellow co-director Mike Williams delivered a shipment of Easter eggs to Horley Food Bank on Wednesday, March 31.

And Joe was proud to play his part in lifting Horley out of this ‘dark time’.

He added: “Coronavirus restrictions are slowly being lifted, but it’s been a dark time recently.

“We aim to provide the people of Horley with some new, fresh excitement and the possibility of winning competition prizes on a regular basis.

“We have all felt the impact of Covid hitting our wallets and our local shops.

“Horley Hand-Out wants to get some buzz circulated around the town again. Lets keep it local, keep it Horley.”
