How you can help HS4LC!

29 January 2020

Every charitable organisation requires a level of support from the local community, HS4LC are no exception to this. As a local charity Harrogate Skills for Living Centre welcome involvement from the wider community. This connection enables us to continue to deliver support and the additional services required to help adults with learning disabilities and autism.

We wanted to let you know a few different ways you could easily help HS4LC.

Play The Local Lotto

The Local Lotto was started in September 2018, offering a new fundraising platform for Harrogate charities and good causes.

How it works is 60p from every £1 ticket sold will go directly to HS4LC. This is better than the National Lottery where only 30p in £1 goes back into the community.

The Local Lotto is drawn every Saturday and we have already seen lots of the HS4LC supporters win!

We would like to thank everyone who is already playing The Local Lotto and supporting HS4LC! You can purchase tickets by clicking here.

Social Media

The last decade has seen the power of social media soar! Social media enables a charity like HS4LC to show our work and the good our organisation is doing to a wide audience for free! We do however rely on our trusty supporters and followers to like and share our post to help us reach more people in the online community.

You may not think a little click of a button could help us but it really can! The more people who like and share our social media posts leads to a knock on effect. When you like our posts it increases our visibility on social media and enables our posts to be seen by a wider audience therefore helping us spread the word of our organisation.

If you don't already know, you can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Give as you Live
