Everyone loves a lottery . . . and here's your opportunity to join in the fun at the same time as helping to support disabled and terminally ill children.
Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children is launching its lottery with a difference. For every £1 entry, 50 pence is donated to the charity. Players have a chance to win thousands of pounds each week - with a £25,000 jackpot.
The more people who play, the more money Newlife receives to directly fund specialist equipment for children with disabilities and terminal illness across the UK.
The draw takes place every Saturday and each entry is £1. If you match all six numbers you not only win £25,000 but Newlife will get a bonus £2,500. Five digits wins £1,000, four digits £25 and three digits matched gets £5. For further details and to sign up now click here.
Every day, Chester mum Nicole Luijenburg sees the difference specialist equipment can make. Newlife provided her four-year-old daughter Olivia, who has recently undergone major surgery, with a specialist car seat so she can travel pain-free as she recovers.
Olivia, from Chester, has abnormal flexed hip sockets and uses specialist footwear to walk. Nicole said: "Because of Olivia's hip dysplasia she needs to be comfortable. She was growing out of her rear facing car seat - it was quite narrow, putting pressure onto her hips. She needed a seat with enough room so that, after surgery, the healing process can take place without any added pressure. Getting the new car seat has definitely put our minds at ease."
She added: "By playing the Newlife Lottery you can support other children like Olivia so they can get the essential equipment they need for everyday life."
Lewis clearly finds the safespace calming and settled much more quickly at night, he has only had one sleepless night, but it was a noise free one as the safespace prevented him striking the walls and softened his vocalisations. We are deeply humbled by the generosity of Newlife.
Thank you for Joshua's new wheelchair. He is so proud of it and is showing it off to everyone! We are all very grateful for the help you provided.
The provision of this wheelchair allows him to access all aspects of life, acedemic and social with a degree of independence. He is Acorns Young Ambassador and this wheelchair allows him to be so pro active. All of the Newlife people are working together; the application was so straightforward and much quicker than we expected.
