    How playing helps children like Cara

    For vulnerable children experiencing poverty, like Cara, there can be little to look forward to. Cara was 7 years old when her and her family were living in one room, without beds to sleep on or even a cooker. Thankfully we were able to give Cara’s mum a hamper of food, so the children didn’t go hungry over winter and board games so they could spend quality time together. Little things can make a huge difference to a child living in poverty. By playing our Weekly Lottery, you’ll sprinkle some hope in children’s lives.

    Believe in the win. Believe in children.
