Charities benefitting from record amount donated by Lotteries

Lottery games in the UK have raised £296 million for charities in the last year, which is a huge £40 million more than the previous year.

Charities are benefitting more and more

The figures cover the year to March 2018 and show that smaller lotteries around the UK are contributing more to charities than ever before. The National Lottery, the biggest and most established game in the UK, also saw figures rise from £1.49 billion to £1.51 billion, a 1.5 percent increase.

Early in 2019, the National Lottery is planning to rebrand its charitable fund to become the National Lottery Community Fund, an idea which hopes to emphasize that proceeds from the lottery go straight back into the community.

Officials have suggested that smaller society lotteries such as the Health Lottery or People’s Postcode Lottery should be allowed to raise even more money for local causes, as the current limits are set at £10 million. This would allow the charity lotteries to co-exist with the National Lottery and make a bigger contribution together to worthy causes.

Local communities are the winners

There has been a recent push on ensuring that lotteries contribute to local communities, and that players know where their money is going. The rise in income in the last year could be due to an increased public awareness of society lotteries. The People’s Postcode Lottery recently announced plans itself to raise more money for local charities.

A spokesperson for the Lotteries Council in the UK said that the growth of charity lottery income is very welcome in the charity fundraising sector. “We welcome that both charity lottery funding and National Lottery funding are on growth trajectories,” he said, adding that it is a ‘win-win’ situation for the country.

Charity lotteries have donated to appeals including a human rights organisation and a charity which provides children’s school meals around the world.
