People’s Postcode Lottery is a subscription lottery that raises money for good causes in Great Britain and around the world.

At least 32 per cent of the ticket price goes to charity, and since 2005 players have raised millions of pounds for good causes.

Sightsavers is a promoting society for the lottery, meaning players are helping to fund our sight-saving work across the world. We are incredibly grateful for this generous support.

For more about how players of People’s Postcode Lottery are helping us change lives worldwide, watch our video below to see broadcaster Fiona Phillips and Sightsavers’ Mike Straney discussing our work and trying our cataract simulator, which shows people what the world would look like if they had cataracts.
