The Big Lottery Fund is donating up to £5 million to help the relief effort in the Philippines after the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan.
The organisation, which distributes funds for good causes raised through lottery ticket sales, said it will make the cash available to UK-based charities working with communities in the disaster-ravaged country.
More than 150,000 people backed a petition calling for a £12 million EuroMillions prize to be donated to the Disaster Relief Fund to help people in the Philippines.
