A minimum of 32 per cent of the ticket sales is donated directly to charities.

Players nationwide have raised more than £500 million to date, for thousands of good causes. 

Today's draw was promoted by Maggie’s, which has received over £14.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The charity runs a network of cancer support centres all over the UK, including at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford.
