This draw was promoted on behalf of the Guide Dogs for The Blind Association which has received £2.8 million worth of funding from the players of the lottery. It works towards a future where everyone with sight loss can live confidently, actively and independently.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and charities can apply for funding next year.
