The Homeless World Cup Foundation has been awarded £300,000 by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
The award, which will be used over the next three years, will help the Homeless World Cup Foundation to further develop the tournament and systems, and to support their international network which helps people who are experiencing homelessness in over 70 countries around the world.
Ryan Mackie, Homeless World Cup Foundation CEO said: “We are delighted to receive this fantastic award from People’s Postcode Lottery. The funding will enable us to continue to develop the Homeless World Cup annual tournament, generate increased income and better measure our impact. All of which will help us support our partners and people who are homeless around the world.”
Clara Govier, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “I am really pleased that players are able to support such a great cause which is working hard to transform the lives of homeless men and women all over the world.”

Players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes, while raising money for charities and good causes across Great Britain and globally. A minimum of 32% goes directly to charities and players have raised £272.8 million to date for good causes across the country.
