Sistema Scotland is delighted by news that players of People’s Postcode Lottery have now raised an amazing £41,572,783. for charities and good causes since the lottery’s launch in 2008.
The money has made a massive difference to hundreds of communities with funding awarded to numerous grass root groups and local projects as well as national and international charities.
Sistema Scotland has received £100,000, supporting the work of our Big Noise orchestras in Raploch, Stirling and Govanhill, Glasgow.
“Money for our orchestras is an investment in the lives of children,” said Sistema Scotland Director and CEO Nicola Killean. “We are producing not just musicians but happy, healthy and well-equipped citizens.”
People’s Postcode Lottery and their sister lotteries in the Netherlands and Sweden were collectively announced as the second largest charitable private donor in the world, according to British business-focused newspaper City AM.
In total over £4.9 billion has been awarded to good causes across the globe.
