Royal Voluntary Service is fortunate to benefit from funds raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery; a charity lottery where participants play with their postcodes to win cash prizes, while raising money for charities and good causes. A minimum of 31% goes directly to charities and players have raised an amazing £237.8 million for good causes so far.

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have been supporting Royal Voluntary Service since 2015 and have raised over £5m for our work with older people across Great Britain.

Royal Voluntary Service ambassador, Wayne Sleep OBE visited our at volunteer-run dance club in Banbury and whilst there he also took some time out to celebrate the amazing £5m milestone by recording a message of thanks to players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Funds raised by players are helping us to provide services and activities which support older people to stay connected to their communities. One of the ways we’re doing this is to support more volunteers to develop and run groups and clubs which help to bring people together.
