A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted on behalf of WaterAid which has received more than £15.9 million worth of funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The charity is determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefited from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding next year.
