What is the National Lottery?

The National Lottery – and with it National Lottery funding for good causes like heritage, arts, sport and charities – was established in 1994. Every ticket sold contributes funds to good causes across the UK.

National Lottery funding through the Heritage Lottery Fund is one of Northumberland Wildlife Trust's most important sources of income and has helped us to achieve  amazing things for people and wildlife.
