The establishment of the Health Lottery, a competitor for the National Lottery has caused a bit of a stir. At 20.4%, the health lottery distributes a smaller share of revenue to good causes than both the for-profit National Lottery (28%) and fundraising lotteries run by hospices themselves (50-60%).
Contrary to the public perception, not all charities appeal for donations. Only around a third of the money charities receive every year comes from donations and legacies from members of the public. I think a nice way of illustrating the sheer range of activities is to provide some quirkier examples from the register.
