Win cash for kindness

Living with sight loss and other disabilities can be difficult for people if they don’t have the right support. Everyday tasks that are taken for granted, like forming friendships and living independently, are often harder for people living with a disability.

Our support, advice and training enables people and their families to build skills, develop confidence, and empower them to create a more positive future for themselves. For every £1 you spend on the lottery, at least 50p will go to ensure that Nat and others living with disabilities in your local area get the help they need to live the life they want.

This news has made my year! I have a close family connection to the cause with a family member who works at the incredible Arts & Crafts Centre in Knaresborough, and am really pleased and proud to support Henshaws. What brilliant news to get so close to Christmas. Thank you so much!

My daughter works at Henshaws Specialist College, and I’m so proud of the brilliant job she and all the staff there do. I’ve been playing the Lottery for as long as I can remember, and will continue to do so. I’ve had two wins on the Henshaws lottery very recently, and I’m delighted to be able to gift this money to my children for them to treat themselves
