make a smile lottery newsletter: Celebrating Charity Champions

Thank you for being a Charity Champion

We have all celebrated the extraordinary dedication of key workers throughout this pandemic and shown our gratitude for the heroes of Covid-19. We now want to turn the spotlight on all our lovely lottery players and applaud you for being a Charity Champion. 

Make a smile lottery wants to hear from you…

We want to celebrate all our amazing lottery players and the difference you make to those in need in your community, just by playing the lottery. We would love for you to share your story to be included in some very special posts on the make a smile lottery Facebook page. 

What motivates you to play? Perhaps you have won a prize, or you just want to help out your local community. Has the charity helped a loved one or are you a volunteer? Whatever your story, we want to hear from you!

Simply send an email to [email protected] with your story or a little quote. You can even send in a quick video or photo if you like! Keep an eye on the make a smile lottery Facebook Page to see your story and more! 

Do you have a Charity Champion?

Have you experienced the wonderful care given by the charity perhaps first hand or through a loved one or a friend? If so, we would like to give you the opportunity to pay tribute to your Charity Champion. Perhaps a member of the team went above and beyond to help or a particular member of staff or volunteer at the charity really stood out to you.
