NCBI new Eye Can Lottery launches

Monday, June 22nd 2020, NCBI is delighted to launch its new weekly eye can lottery available through and it is being trialled in over 40 of its 116 stores. Enter today to be in with a chance of winning €200 cash prize each week together with extra seasonal prizes and jackpots. Single entry is €2 per week (€8.80 per month).

Joe McKenna, NCBI Head of Fundraising said “we are thrilled this lottery is now operational and presents a sustained, engaging and fun way to raise funds for the delivery of our frontline services. The onset of Covid19 saw the cessation of all our fundraising events and closure of our stores which had a drastic effect on our income. We’ve had to be creative to find alternative funding sources and the Eye Can Lottery is one such initiative.”

Customers are encouraged to play when they are shopping or donating items to our stores. The weekly draw takes place every Tuesday. For more details on how to play, the different ways to support our work and the impact of our work please check out
