The Health Lottery is made up of 51 society charities which represent a specific region of England, Scotland and Wales, each draw is designed to raise money for a specific charity society who will in turn use the funds to fund local level health related causes. The managing body behind The Health Lottery has come under fire from the Managing Director of The National Lottery who has predicted that the providers are withholding 50p for every £1 spent on tickets as expenses, an extortionate amount when compared to The National Lottery’s 5p expenses for every £1 spent on tickets. Although The Health Lottery only pledges to donate the minimum amount of proceeds by law, there has been some worthwhile projects funded through the game, it has recently celebrated reaching £50 million in donations. The celebration of hitting an impressive milestone came at a time when the total amount of Health Lottery retailers dropped by over 10%, causing a large drop in sales.
The HealthBright society charity has received over £240,000 in funding through The Health Lottery without including the proceeds of tonight’s draw. The list of projects and organisations who have received funding from the group include the Birmingham Sports and Education Foundation, Three Trees Community Centre, Alzheimer’s Society and School Food Trust. HealthBright has received the proceeds from the Wednesday draw and tonight’s game will be the final fund raiser for this charity until it’s next turn, the following Wednesday’s draw will be in aid of another society and area of the UK.
