Sterling, the UK’s leading fundraising lottery service provider has made a donation to the Rare Chromosome Disorder Support Group – Unique.
Sterling held a prize draw whilst exhibiting at the Charity Fair in Central Hall, Westminster. The exhibition was attended by over 800 charity and fundraising professionals.
Unique were the lucky winners of the prize draw and the donation will enable them to continue their work supplying voluntary services to people with Chromosome Disorders and their families.
Julie Griffin, Finance and Fundraising officer for Unique said: “The donation will be put towards the cost of our family conference held in Daventry in November, where over 200 families will be able to meet up and learn more about rare chromosome disorders in a relaxed and social setting. To help raise funds for the conference and for our other many services, we were already considering setting up a charity lottery, so winning Sterling’s free prize draw is a wonderful added bonus.”
Sterling also makes an annual donation to St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston. For further information about Sterling please visit
