First of all, a big thanks to everyone who used their reward points to vote for a charity last month. We Love Manchester (British Red Cross Pledges) just edged the vote this month. Which means we will be splitting our £1000 donation with £551 being donated to the Manchester Fund and £449 to Save the Children. UPDATE! We have got a lovely message from JustGiving saying thank you for the donations that you voted for. So we want you to give yourself a big pat on the back and to say thank you to our members!
Great news! Lotto Social were the top 1% of donors for June on JustGiving.
Every month we select two worthy charities and split £1000 to those charities depending on how you vote. So, while we are waiting for our lucky numbers to come up, we try to make it a lucky day for others. If you have any suggestions for where you would like to see us donate for next month. Feel free to drop us an email @ Donate.
