Loteri Cymru

People's Choice campaign
1.8m reach of #LCPeoplesChoice
+106% new lottery players


Loteri Cymru is the all-Wales lottery, which was created to raise vital funds for charities in Wales. With many charities losing their income streams overnight due to COVID19 pandemic restrictions we invited charities in Wales to take part in our People’s Choice public vote to decide a new charity partner for 2021. The charity which received the most votes secured an upfront donation of £5,000 and ongoing financial support thanks to lottery players in Wales.
