July is charity month at FreePostcodeLottery.com the 100% Free Daily Prize Draw where all you need is a postcode.

From Monday 17 June, when you sign up to the daily free prize draw you will be asked to nominate a charity. Then if your postcode is chosen during July, you will win at least £20 and the charity of your choice will be sent a matching donation.
