The Conveyancing Foundation has launched an appeal for Ukraine by opening up its monthly Charity Lotto to members of the public for the first time, raising £15,000 in 24 hours. The zero-profit Foundation hopes to raise thousands of pounds to help Ukrainians in desperate need in the coming months. All the funds raised through the Lotto from today will be donated to the official DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Since 2010 the Conveyancing Foundation Charity Lotto has helped the Foundation to raise over £860,000 for local and national charities through a monthly draw which clients of lotto members can enter at the end of their transactions for a chance to win £500.
From today, for a minimum donation of £10, anyone can now take part in the Charity Lotto with a possible chance to win £500. Everyone involved in the conveyancing industry is asked to help. Nicola Lancaster from the Conveyancing Foundation said, “By participating in the Conveyancing Foundation Charity Lotto you will be raising funds that will help DEC charities in Ukraine and neighbouring countries meet the needs of all refugees and displaced people. To put it in context, £30 could provide hygiene supplies for three people for one month.”
