Miss Out to Help Out

A partnership between The National Lottery, ITV and STV. Why not miss out on your favourite show and use that time to help your community? (You can always catch up on ITV Hub and STV Player later!)

How to help out

No matter how little time you have or where you live, there’s always something you can do to help your community. You can even help out online or over the phone, from the comfort of your sofa.

People say to me, why don’t you do something for yourself instead? But this IS for me, I don’t mind missing out on watching This Morning on the telly!
