September is a month we’ve all come to know well as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. A month where not only Australia, but the world, puts a spotlight on children’s cancer. Here at The Lott, we’re proud to be able to support partners whose mission is to make a positive difference through research, treatments, support services, and family care.

Since 2019, The Lott by SA Lotteries has supported Childhood Cancer Association to help them continue their hands-on support to children with cancer and their families, and we’re proud to continue our support for the fourth year in a row, with a $50,000 donation, taking our total contribution to $250,000.

Childhood Cancer Association offers critical care support to families who have a child with cancer, tailoring their services to meet the needs of each family, as no families journey is the same. From professional counselling, accommodation, and educational support to ongoing care through bereavement or survivorship services, Childhood Cancer Association has been delivering on their mission since 1982.

The Lott Partnerships Manager Liz McPherson says she is elated to further our commitment to the association.

“The critical services that Childhood Cancer Association play such an important role in the lives of those affected by a childhood cancer diagnosis.

“The eye-opening statistic that every week, a child in South Australia is diagnosed with cancer, is hard to believe, but the association is able to be on hand to help thanks to our continued donation, which is quite humbling.”

Childhood Cancer Association Chief Executive Cath O’Loughlin says donations are essential, as the association doesn't receive government funding.

“For more than 40 years, we have relied on the generous support of the community to continue to do the work that we do.

“We are so grateful to The Lott by SA Lotteries for their partnership and commitment to supporting children with cancer, and their families.”
