Special National Lottery ‘Thank You’ TV ad to air

National Lottery players across the country are receiving a chorus of ‘Thank Yous’ in a special National Lottery TV advert that is airing this week.

The Thank Yous are from some of the frontline projects and organisations who are helping the nation through the current crisis and have received National Lottery funding.

Thanks to National Lottery players, up to £600M will be used to support charities and organisations affected by the unprecedented impact of the coronavirus outbreak in the UK.

By playing The National Lottery, £30M is raised every week, on average, by National Lottery players for projects big and small across the country. 

Hundreds of millions of pounds will be distributed to charities and local voluntary organisations over the next few months to help support people through the COVID-19 crisis – from helping support food banks, to causes that combat loneliness and isolation, support for the elderly and projects that support mental and physical health in the community.

 Five National Lottery-funded projects from across the nation will be on primetime TV to say thanks to players for their continued support. 

The aim is to remind the public that just by buying a ticket or Scratchcard for any National Lottery game they are making a real difference to society.  The five projects coming together to say thanks are: 

        Youth Sports Trust – funded by Sport England, this UK-wide project is helping thousands of children stay active at home.

        Intercultural Youth Scotland – funded by The National Lottery Community Fund (TNLCF), this project is providing online services for vulnerable young people during these unprecedented times.

        BASIC (Brain & Spinal Injury Centre) – funded by TNLCF, this North West-based project continue to support those recovering from brain and spinal injury whilst their catering team have extended their service by making hundreds of homemade pies for NHS staff

        Dungannon Multiple Sclerosis Support Group – funded by TNLCF, the project is providing online physiotherapy for people with multiple sclerosis in Northern Ireland.

        South Denbighshire, Community Partnership – funded by TNLCF, this project is delivering hot meals to the most vulnerable in remote parts of Wales.
