Welcome to the RNID newsletter where you can find out what's happening in your local area during Deaf Awareness Week, 1-7 May 2006, and get the latest details on the new online lottery.

The fairer lottery

We’re one of the charity partners of a new online lottery, called monday, that aims to raise ?150 million a year for UK charities.

The chance of winning the jackpot is better than the National Lottery and there’s a guaranteed winner every week.

The first draw is during Deaf Awareness Week in May and we’re one of the first charities to benefit. So take part in the monday lottery and help improve the lives of deaf and hard of hearing people.
