Good Causes Fund Helps Provide Egg-cellent Fun This Easter
Last Updated: Wednesday 23rd March 2016, 09:25 am
As anticipation grows ahead of tonight’s Lotto draw, with a jackpot that has now reached a guaranteed £24.8 million, players are able to buy their tickets with the confidence that their money is being used to fund hundreds of thousands of good causes across the country. With Easter now within touching distance, the money generated from the sale of Lotto tickets will no doubt help people everywhere have an egg-cellent time over the holidays.
Across the country, children are finishing school in time for a well-deserved Easter break, a time that is wonderful for them, but perhaps less so for parents who are desperate to keep the little people in their life entertained for a whole two weeks?
That is where the National Lottery comes to the rescue. Since its inception in 1994, the National Lottery has raised more than £34 billion for good causes across the country, providing aid for almost half a million projects. With so many days out to be had thanks to this marvelous organisation, parents will have no need to fear.
There is Easter-themed fun to be had in all corners of the UK, from an ‘obst-egg-cle course’ at the Eden Project in Cornwall to a hunt for the Easter Bunny at the National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride; there’s even egg rolling at Cardiff Castle! These venues share one thing in common and that is that they have all benefitted from the National Lottery’s Good Causes Fund.
If you are looking for a cracking time without any egg-based tomfoolery, there are plenty of other UK attractions to visit that have thrived thanks to money from your Lotto ticket. Leicester’s National Space Centre, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Wakefield and Kew Gardens in the nation’s capital are all worthy recipients of lottery funding and provide fantastic family fun that will have kids and adults smiling from ear to ear.
Amongst all the good cheer of lottery-funded projects, don’t forget that there is a jackpot to be won this evening that could ensure that you certainly will have an Easter to remember. Tickets can be purchased online or from authorised retailers across the country. Best of luck!
