Spread the love this St Dwynwen’s Day and show your support by voting for St John Ambulance Cymru to become Loteri Cymru’s People Choice Charity of the Year!
Loteri Cymru has opened up a search for a new charity to support during 2021 through its People’s Choice campaign and we are delighted that we’ve been shortlisted. But in order to win the crown we need your votes!
The last year has been incredibly tough on the charity sector, and we’ve faced and are continuing to face extremely challenging times, so we really hope you’ll get behind the campaign. If St John Ambulance Cymru win, we’ll join Loteri Cymru’s current partners LATCH – the Welsh Children’s Cancer Charity, Welsh Hearts, Youth Cymru and North Clwyd Animal Rescue (NCAR), who collectively received close to £40,000 of donations in 2020 alone.
Through its People’s Choice campaign, the all-Wales lottery, which was created to raise vital funds to support local charities, has given the people of Wales the power to choose its new charity partner who will receive an up-front donation of £5,000 together with ongoing financial support. This is thanks to lottery players, who for £1 a week help raise vital funds for charities in Wales, as well as try their luck at scooping the £25,000 weekly jackpot cash prize.
To be in with the chance of making it into the line-up, charities were asked to submit a short video detailing why the people of Wales should vote for them to receive the support. Our video is available to view here where you will also be able to cast your vote!
Remember absolutely anyone and everyone is allowed to vote – so don’t forget to ask your colleagues, friends and family to vote and spread the word by posting the link to vote on their social media channels.
You have until 21st February to cast your vote so please get voting!
There’s no easier way to support our lifesaving work.
