RAISE MONEY ON 15 DECEMBER FOR TERRENCE HIGGINS TRUST WITH MYLOTTO24

 

ZEAL Group’s associate company, leading international lottery betting business, myLotto24, today announced that all bets made on its site on Friday 15th December will be donated to Terrence Higgins Trust, the UK’s leading HIV and sexual health charity.

The activity comes exactly two weeks after World AIDS Day, when Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle made their first public engagement together, visiting the charity’s World AIDS Day fair in Nottingham.

It also coincides with the UK Government’s Local Charities Day which highlights the work of charities making a remarkable difference in their community, and myLotto24’s UK launch which took place this week.

All money raised on Friday will support the Terrence Higgins Trust’s, whose Work Positive programme helps people living with HIV and who are unemployed into employment, through support, training and work placements. myLotto24 is a proud partner of this programme.

Claire McMaster, Director of Fundraising, Terrence Higgins Trust, said: “With the amazing medical progress made over the last few years, we’re beginning to get closer to ending HIV. But we’re not there yet. More funds are needed to ensure people are getting tested and, if diagnosed with HIV, do so early and can access effective treatment. We must also continue to tackle the huge levels of stigma facing people living with HIV, and support and empower them to live well. That’s why we’re thrilled that myLotto24 has selected us as its launch charity of choice – helping us raise vital funds on our journey to achieve all of these things.”

Lena Patel, Head of Corporate Affairs, myLotto24, said: “Giving back is core to what we do. In the last four years myLotto24 has given close to a million pounds to amazing causes such as SportsAid and the London Community Foundation; helping support the athletes of tomorrow and the communities of today. As we launch in the UK, we’re delighted to give our customers the opportunity to bet for good; a chance to win life-changing sums of money while helping Terrence Higgins Trust continue their amazing work, including getting people living with HIV back into work through its Work Positive initiative.”

myLotto24 caused a stir earlier in the week when their oversized Spanish Matador – dubbed the ’Fatador’ – highjacked a number of tourist sites in London, got stuck in a red telephone box, and tried to board a London tour bus. The stunt marked the company’s UK launch, with Brits now able to bet on the world’s largest lottery – El Gordo, amongst many other international lotteries, to win jackpot-matching prizes.
