Help us raise money to save our Lighthouse through the People First Community Lottery

People First Community Lottery

The Cape Jaffa Lighthouse is an iconic South Australian historic cast iron structure, attracting and amazing visitors on guided tours, and providing a memorable insight into the lives of the lightkeepers and their families for just over 100 years of its operation on the Margaret Brock Reef.

It created Australian history when it became the first offshore Australian lighthouse to be meticulously

dismantled and re-erected on land. It now stands on the foreshore at Kingston.

Since 1976, the Kingston Branch of National Trust as been entrusted with its care, maintenance and, ultimately, its preservation. Maintenance work must be continuous to ensure that any deterioration is kept to a minimum - a major challenge in its coastal location.

The Kingston SE Branch needs to raise funds to undertake three urgent conservation tasks:

  1. Removal and repair of rust and corrosion damage.

  2. Painting the external surfaces of the lighthouse.

  3. Re-caulking the lantern glazing and replace a glazing panel.

This year, we’re taking part in the 2024 People First Community Lottery to help raise much needed funds for restoration and conservation work on the Lighthouse.

What’s the Community Lottery?

Originally known as the People's Choice Community Lottery, the People First Community Lottery gives not-for-profit community groups around Australia the opportunity to raise funds and achieve fundraising goals. The Community Lottery has helped to raise more than $22 million for community groups since its inception in 1984. All the proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the nominated group.
