mylotto24.ie, Ireland's newest lottery betting company, presented a cheque for €6,600 to Making Connections, a non-profit organisation working with Health Services and community groups in South County Dublin since 2009, to alleviate loneliness and isolation in the Community.


mylotto24.ie is committed to supporting good causes in all markets in which it operates and as part of their sustainable Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programme, are working with the Community Foundation for Ireland to engage with local community charities, where funding can make a real and immediate difference to people's everyday lives.


Making Connections believe something as simple as a regular home visit can have a very positive impact on an older person's general health and well-being. They connect volunteers who are garda vetted, screened and fully trained (omit fully screened volunteers) with an older person based on common interests, to do weekly hour-long visits. Currently, they are supporting a team of 80 engaging and energetic volunteers, in the Dun-Laoghaire-Rathdown community.


Speaking about the donation, Mary O’Donohue CEO of Making Connections said, “We would like to thank mylotto24.ie for their generous donation, that will enable us on our journey to continue cultivating a connected and thriving community for generations to come. We aim to create a community where everybody looks out for everybody else and this money will go directly towards the befriending programme”


Launched in early 2017, mylotto24.ie currently provides betting for four different lotteries; Irish National Lottery, EuroMillions, EuroJackpot and the German Lotto, with mylotto24.ie guaranteeing to match the prize amounts and jackpots on offer in those draws.


mylotto24.ie aims to improve the lottery experience of the Irish audience, by creating a refreshingly simple new way to create small moments of happiness leading to a better life. Lena Patel, Head of CSR, mylotto24.ie said, “We believe in giving back, in particular providing support to organisations that do amazing work but often fly below the radar. We are delighted to be supporting three local Irish charities in 2017. We are honoured to be supporting such an amazing organisation as Making Connections, in combatting loneliness and bringing the whole community together.”
