About Magic Blog PPL Charity Gathering People’s Postcode Lottery hosted their annual charity gathering this week. To date players have raised an astounding £310 million for a wide variety of charities and good causes. Thank you players! Magic Breakfast is lucky enough to be one of the beneficiaries, as is MAC Birmingham which was the lovely venue for the event. The PPL team informed the audience about their work, new funds available and shared some useful media tips. Magic Breakfast was praised for its impact report and was included in an example of good media content – a video of a visit by PPL staff to one of the busy primary schools we work with in London. Vicky Karoulia, Fundraising Manager at Magic Breakfast, said: “The event was an excellent opportunity for charity representatives to learn from each other and find out more about the amazing causes PPL supports”. Our founder, Carmel McConnell, opened the charity presentations with a talk on Magic Breakfast’s impact and her theory of change, which was very well received. A big thank you from Magic Breakfast to everyone at People's Postcode Lottery for organising such a useful and inspiring day.
