Charity celebrates Valencia's market

Spain's much loved charity for the blind, ONCE, will celebrate more than 100 years of Valencia's Central Market, next Tuesday, with special commemorative tickets for their national prize draw.

Costing €1.50 each, 5.5 million of the "daily draw" tickets will be printed with a centenary image of the market building on them, helping promote Valencia to ticket buyers around Spain.

With much better odds than many lotteries, the ONCE competitions are highly popular and raise funds to provide services for the blind and people with serious visual impairment in Spain.

If you're in Valencia before next Tuesday, watch out for the tickets which are available from the charity's distinctive green booths and from official street vendors around the city centre. With the chance to win 55 jackpots of €35,000 and many other cash prizes, why not buy one to show your love for Valencia and support the blind!
