TLC lottery

The TLC Lottery is a Birmingham based Lottery which was set up in 1997 by three Birmingham charities which were refused funding from the National Lottery - Acorns Children’s Hospice, Birmingham Focus on Blindness and St Mary's Hospice.

There are 164 prizes each week, including a top prize of £1000.

Nominate Birmingham Christmas Shelter when you join the lottery and 45p in the pound will go to us, 15p goes to the above charities and the rest is used for prizes. Good luck!!

Wills and legacies

At the very core of our work is the belief that the actions of individuals can make a difference; what better way to demonstrate this than by leaving a legacy to us and helping to change the future for the better

No one likes to think about making a will and people have all sorts of reasons for not making one - they don't have time, they don't believe it's necessary and, of course, none of us plan on dying in the near future.  Yet having an up-to-date will is probably one of the most important things you can do to ensure your wishes will be carried out exactly as you wanted.  Plus, it's the only way to protect the rights of your children and loved ones.

You can also make a contribution to a future that enables Birmingham Christmas Shelter to work for Birmingham's homeless and vulnerable people.

If you would like to talk to us about what we do and to discuss a will or legacy please contact us.
