On Monday 29th February, representatives of Haddenham Cricket Club attended an event organised by AVDC to celebrate the success of its 'Vale Lottery'.

Local celebrity Tony Hadley, former lead singer of 1980s superband, Spandau Ballet, was there to show his support, and the ladies from Haddenham had a good chat with him about how much he enjoys life in the Vale — including his appreciation of the Haddenham Beer Festival!

Tony was happy to be snapped for 'selfies' and group photos.

The singer said: "It's been lovely to meet so many people from so many great organisations. As a resident of the Vale I'm really thrilled that the Vale Lottery has taken off and is making such a difference to causes on my doorstep; and for those playing, it's great to know that they could win a bit more too!"

Cllr Janet Blake, Cabinet Member for Business Transformation added: "It was wonderful to have the chance to welcome so many people from different local causes to The Gateway, and to hear how they're benefiting from the Vale Lottery. Huge thanks to Tony Hadley for his support, and we're looking forward to seeing this successful scheme go from strength to strength. As we've seen today, it's been a big help to many deserving organisations; long may it continue."

The Vale Lottery provides a fantastic opportunity to support local causes while also having a chance of winning big. Anyone interested in buying a ticket and supporting their local cricket club can do so here.

And if you are a supporter of the Vale Lottery ...
You are gold
Always believe in your soul
You've got the power to know
You're indestructible, always believe in, 'cos you're
