We think nothing of spending over £2 on a small latte, so what difference can £1 per week really make to our local charities?

Carl Bayliss has managed TLC Lottery for nearly 4 years and in this time has seen how giving a small amount helps thousands of local people each year.

“The money raised through the ongoing support of TLC Lottery players is the equivalent of funding 3 specialist children’s hospice nurses, 65 adult patients receiving Hospice at Home care and 2,000 blind disabled people visited at home” explains Carl

“Although our lottery’s weekly top prize of £1,000 is not life-changing compared to the huge National Lottery prizes, the money raised by our supporters makes a real difference to so many Birmingham people”

TLC is a joint fundraising venture of Acorns Children’s Hospice, Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice and Focus Birmingham.

It costs just £1 per week to play and you can join online at www.tlclottery.co.uk or telephone 01564 825047
