Over the years more than £111million has raised, helping over 3,000 projects to empower the most vulnerable communities in each region.
The Health Lottery operates on behalf of 12 society lotteries, each of which works closely with People's Health Trust to ensure the money goes where it's needed most.
Loneliness, dementia, mental health issues and learning disabilities are just some of the issues they support.
And while you're helping make a difference to other people, you could also change your life forever with a massive cash prize if you're one of the lucky winners.
There have been more than 11million Health Lottery winners so far, scooping an incredible £148 million between them.
