Every year, 90 families in the UK will be told their babies have no eyes, small eyes, or a cleft in the eye. Many of them will have additional needs or other health challenges. Some will be told there's no hope that their child will ever sea. They may feel hopeless and alone - but they are not alone and there is hope.
Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma Support (MACS) is the UK's national charity for children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes. We help over 2,500 people across the UK, supporting them at each stage of their journey by providing peer support, practical help and opportunities to take part in life-changing activity trips.
Finding MACS when our daughter was born was an absolute ray of light moment, to know that other parents were out there sharing their experiences and that we weren't alone- which we absolutely felt at that time- was completely up-lifting.
Please join our weekly lottery - it will make a real difference to the lives of children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes across the UK
How it works
The Lottery results are calculated using the temperatures from selected destinations around Europe on a particular day each week.
Players are assigned 6 numbers when registering, that are then checked against the last 6 digits of temperatures in Fahrenheit that are published in the Daily Mail on the day of the draw.
