Sightsavers’ eye health and education programmes are to receive a funding boost thanks to a new partnership with players of People’s Postcode Lottery, enabling us to transform the lives of many more people in Africa.
Sightsavers Corporate Relationships Manager Ed Hennessy said: “We’re thrilled to have the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery. By taking part in the lottery, players will be helping Sightsavers to change lives in some of the poorest parts of the world by treating conditions that can cause blindness, and improving the lives of people with disabilities.
“We will also use the funds to improve our monitoring and procurement processes. We look forward to working together in 2019.”
People’s Postcode Lottery is a subscription lottery that costs £10 a month and raises money for good causes across Great Britain and around the world. At least 32 per cent of the ticket price goes to charity and players have raised more than £361 million for good causes since 2005.
