If you are looking for an interesting gift for a friend or loved one this Christmas, yet wish to avoid the usual rampant commercialism and give a more socially conscious gift, then this might be the opportunity you have been looking for.
This Christmas give twelve months of excitement to a loved one, and the gift of charity to needy children, with the £5 Lottery Club. It is a fun way to support locally-based children's charities while giving your friend or loved one the chance to win cash prizes of up to £1,000 each month.
The two locally run charities involved are Hope for a Child, who help children and families in Malawi to lift themselves out of poverty, and the Friends of Frossard Children's Ward, whose charitable aims are a little closer to home at the local Princess Elizabeth Hospital.
The charities have created a beautiful gift card to make giving the gift of charity even easier this Christmas. By paying the monthly donation of £5 yourself, either monthly or as an annual lump sum, as a gift to your friend or loved one:
The draw for the monthly cash prizes takes place on the 23rd of each month and the prize fund increases as ticket sales rise.
You can sign up a friend online through this simple and quick online registration process at the Hope for a Child website, making sure you fill out the gift section for your friend. Alternatively print out the application form at this link and complete it accordingly for return by post to Hope for a Child, Upper Mansell Street, St Peter Port, Guernsey GY1 1LY.
Additionally the charities will be selling gift cards at the Christmas Market on Saturdays in Market Square in Town, and outside Martel Maides in the High Street for Thursday late night shopping between now and Christmas.
Wherever you register, the gift card will be sent directly to you so that you can write a personal message inside the card ready to gift it to your friend or loved one this Christmas.
So give the gift of charity this Christmas with Hope for a Child and The Friends of Frossard Children's Ward.
