The Big Lottery Fund website
Last Updated: Thursday 7th July 2011, 16:09
Every week we Brits buy millions of National Lottery tickets that generate millions of pounds in revenue. Since the awarding of the new lottery license around 28% of total National Lottery revenue is expected to go to good causes. In fact over £23 billion has been raised for good causes since the National Lottery’s inception in 1994. Wouldn’t it be nice to see where it goes?
The Big Lottery Fund Website is the place to find everything that you could ever want to know about where, how and when the money for good causes, which is raised by the many National Lottery games, gets allocated. There’s everything from news stories about the Big Lottery Fund to ways you can apply for, or nominate your good causes for grants.
When you arrive on the Big Lottery Fund Website’s home page you will find all the different information very well laid out and easy to find. There is a very handy interactive map of the UK on the right which allows you to select a regional format of the site. This then gives you news feeds from your own area, about local good causes which have benefitted from the Big Lottery Fund’s assistance. There’s loads of information on the Big Lottery Fund’s website, all you could wish to know and if your questions aren’t answered with the content on the site you can contact the Big Lottery Fund team from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday through the interactive chat facility.
So next time you buy tickets for Lotto, Thunderball, Daily Play, scratch cards or any of the other games offered by the National Lottery remember that not only is some of your hard earned money going to good causes but you can actually see where it goes courtesy of the Big Lottery Fund website.
