This Saturday starts a new lottery,for the NHS, I think its a very good idea and my tickets have been purchased/

You think it is a good idea that just 25p out of every pound you spend is donated to NHS aligned projects.
75% of your money is going elsewhere.
Good idea for those who set the scam/scheme up?

I thought you were talking about operations.

It's actually The Health lottery and has little to do with the NHS ,
It also seems to be causing havoc at the tills with queues building up because it's using paypoint (slow to connect and staff are having to re-enter
the numbers manualy ) rather than a dedicated system .

It says they would make £50,000,000 out of it..

I think it's a disgrace - those of us who pay taxes and NI have paid more than enough into the system to fund it already. Don't let me stop you
further funding it though...

I thought an intelligent young lady like you would have known they are seriousley under funded in the NHS.

Maybe in England...

It's only 20p going to "causes".
They started collecting for the 1st draw last week giving them a week ahead to get funds in.

That is truly appalling.
I was reading one of the papers waiting for a coffee the other morning and it was pushing it like it was the saviour of the NHS. Probably a vested
interest. Not sure how Branson who wanted to run the lottery at cost price ever got rejected.

It has nothing to do with the NHS it is privately run.

Oh dear, here we go again, is there a common denominator?
Or, am I wide of the mark......................
sceptre - 6-10-2011 at 16:14
Thanks for that victor , confirming what I posted earlier ,
not only that but the money doesn't even go to any part of the NHS .(see the link posted previously)
marymary100 - 6-10-2011 at 16:34
All the more reason to avoid it then.
Theravad - 6-10-2011 at 16:43
Indeed. However, as I stated earlier, at least one tabloid were hyping this as the saving of the NHS. Probably a vested interest but poor
journalism and extremely misleading for those who do not read beyond the headlines.
BTW if you would like to send me a £1 for a ticket in my SaveThePensions lotto, you get a negligible chance to win something and I promise a percent
(lit) of this will go good causes.
marymary100 - 6-10-2011 at 16:49
I already gave away a sizable amount of money to charity today - with
no chance of getting anything in return but that's fair enough.
