Just by playing People’s Postcode Lottery, you help support fantastic UK charities like Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres
20p from every £1 spent on tickets goes to charity and Maggie’s has received an incredible £1.8 million to date. That money is being used to provide vital support to people living with cancer and their families.
Maggie’s recently received over £81,400 for their work in England – and it’s all because of you.
Laura Lee, Chief Executive at Maggie’s asked us to pass on this message:
“Thanks to the support of People’s Postcode Lottery, we can continue to build and fund centres around the UK to help empower those suffering to live with, through and beyond cancer.
“We simply could not do what we do for people with cancer without your support so, on behalf of our centre users and everyone here at Maggie’s thank you, and good luck to everyone playing the People’s Postcode Lottery.”
Maggie’s will celebrate its 15th birthday in November and plan to mark the date with 15 centres operational around the UK.
Den, a service user who was diagnosed with breast cancer, explains how much the Maggie’s centre in London means to her:
“The environment of the centre is important: it allows you to see around. It is open, very light, alive and it allows you to breath. The path and the garden leading to the centre are so welcoming as are the staff inside.”
