The origins of The Care Trust lie in the foundation by Rehab of the "RTB Pools and Enterprises" in 1959 and the foundation by the Central Remedial Clinic (CRC) of the "CRC Help Society" in 1960.
The primary objective of the "Pools" was to fundraise for the bodies referred to above. As an incentive/reward, contributors to the "Pools" had an opportunity to win prizes, if their assigned codes matched with English football league results, or racing results in the off season. In recent years the ‘Pools’ process was replaced by a system of regular draws.
The respective fundraising Pools of Rehab and CRC were merged and leading to the eventual creation of The Care Trust brand. The Mater Hospital Pools were absorbed in 1988.
Today, our contributors participate in these regular draws three times a month which are operated in accordance with the provisions of the Gaming & Lotteries Act (1956).
