We’re saying #ThanksToYou to National Lottery players with free entry to our Dark Skies and Dark Deeds event

October 28, 2019

This year is the 25th Birthday of The National Lottery, and we’re excited to be a part of the celebrations by joining in the #ThanksToYou campaign, which celebrates the contribution of National Lottery players in supporting good causes over the past 25 years!

Since The National Lottery’s first draw took place on 19 November 1994, more than £40 billion has been raised for good causes in the areas of arts, sport, heritage and community – that’s £30 million a week making a difference to lives of people and communities throughout the whole of the UK.

To thank National Lottery players for their support, we will be offering free entry to our Dark Skies and Dark Deeds event on 30th November 2019. Anyone who presents any National Lottery ticket on these dates will be able to take up this special offer. Please check our full terms and conditions below.

As a recipient of National Lottery funding, Revitalising Redesdale Landscape Partnership has been able to reinstate an historic river crossing at Smoutel Ford, restored peatland at Whitelee Moor National Nature Reserve, save Ridsdale’s Ironworks from collapse, and award over £13,000 to local community projects . Find out more about the full programme on our Projects page. We are one of the hundreds of participating National Lottery-funded projects across the UK who are taking part in the #ThanksToYou campaign in this special Birthday year.
