It's not only winners who benefit from playing People's Postcode Lottery.

The charity recently launched the Giving Tree Appeal where they collect gifts and donations for disadvantaged children and families.

that European Postcode Millions has landed in North Shields. Through every
ticket bought, players of People's Postcode Lottery have ensured that we can
continue our good work helping children, young people and their families. The
great part about playing is that players and charities can win together. We
also must thank the staff of People's Postcode Lottery who will be buying gifts
for our giving tree appeal to families who need them most this Christmas."
