Post Code Lottery - where does your money go ?

If you do the postcode lottery,,,... you are not alone !... thousands of people in Holland and Sweden, also do it ! ! ... the money they raise goes to "charities"  ?
Well here is where some of the money raised (since 2007) has gone.....

Am I right in thinking that you share any win with others who bought a ticket within the same Post Code?
From what I read some time ago I agree it seems more like a scam.
Their ads get on my nerves  Cheesy
I may look into the health one.

When the National Lottery went up to £2 I switched to the Health Lottery. I have had a number of small wins up to £50 each.

Only had a few "tenners" on the national lottery since the start..... when it went to £2 I changed to the health lottery.... only had one "win" and that was a free ticket for the next weeks draw...
We live in hope... but at least the money is going to "health" associated things... ( I hope !)....
