The previous 12 months have been traumatic and heartbreaking for many - but it has also brought out the best in people and communities.

Whether it's showing solidarity with our NHS workers, organising weekly pub quizzes over Zoom, or small businesses stepping up and offering free school meals to those that need them - we’ve seen how we can have each other's back in difficult times.

The National Lottery has also contributed in the drive to help communities deal with the economic impacts - increasing funding in key community projects affecting different sectors across the United Kingdom.

When you play, a portion of your ticket price goes into a fund to help fund relief efforts.

Examples of National Lottery work includes:

  • National Lottery Community Fund: A whopping £300million has been accelerated to free up funds for local community projects in need. Just head here to apply for funding on behalf of your organisation.
  • The National Lottery Heritage Fund: The important UK heritage sector received a boosted £50million in funding bodies supporting or safeguarding the country's treasured heritage sites.
  • Sport England: A heavily affected sector in 2020 with the impact on organized exercise opportunities - gyms, tennis courts, football pitches have all been deemed unsafe at times in the circumstances. Fortunately, up to £195million has been freed up to help the sector - including a £20million emergency community fund available to local clubs and organisations.

Those points are the standout picks - but you can get the full lowdown on all National Lottery projects by clicking here.

Each week, National Lottery players raise £30million for good causes. When you play, you are contributing. It is worth noting that this is one of the benefits of playing the lotto directly instead of betting on lotteries.

Whilst betting on the lottery has lots of pros, the lack of contribution to good causes is definitely a drawback to consider.

Most importantly - only play or bet what you can absolutely and comfortably afford. This is the single most important message we would like to give. It is really vital that this message comes across loud and clear now more than ever - both for the benefit of individuals and society as a whole.
