Celebrating the National Lottery

To say DIOLCH to the National Lottery and National Lottery players, we’re celebrating the National Lottery’s 26th birthday this month.

As sport has faced one of its toughest years in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, National Lottery contributions have helped to protect and prepare sport for a safe return to activity through the Be Active Wales Fund, which has which has awarded over 100 football clubs financial support.

The National Lottery continues to help the sector to thrive, investing millions of pounds into Welsh sport each year at a strategic and grass roots level.

Thanks to National Lottery players, £30 million is raised every week for good causes, many of which are supporting the most vulnerable in communities across the UK during the Coronavirus crisis.

The National Lottery are inviting you to take part in their birthday celebrations by posting a crossed finger selfie on Thursday 19th November with the hashtags #ThanksToYou and #NationalLottery to say thank you to the National Lottery players for their contribution.
