UK Heritage Sites to Receive Huge Lotto Payout

We always hear stories about people who have bought a lottery ticket and won a big prize, but it’s not the only way to get a big lottery payout, as British heritage sites have learned this week. The National Lottery heritage fund has announced that they are to pay out £48,000,000 to various projects in the UK for restoration and preservation.

It’s fantastic news for arts and heritage as it’s announced that the money will go to various causes including a working theatre and the largest open air museum in the UK. It’s a huge boost for heritage, and with these buildings still in use in communities around the UK, it’s a huge boost for community too!

The £48,000,000 in Lotto grants will be spread across many projects but the biggest grant is going to Canterbury Cathedral, with £12,800,800 to replace the cathedral’s leaky roof and conserve its stonework and stained glass.

Other projects include a £2,300,000 for Bristol’s Old Vic, £7,600,000 to create the Medicine Galleries in London’s Science Museum, £4,600,000 to fund a series of exhibitions in the Royal Air Force Museum, £3,600,000 to display historical musical instruments in the Royal College of Music, a £3,4000,000 learning centre in the Roman Baths, Bath, and £2,500,000 to restore the Shropshire waterway and create 6.8 acres of nature reserve.

It’s a huge boost for British culture and shows where the cash for Good Causes from your lottery tickets goes. All of this has come about through your money and the sale of lottery tickets for both the Lotto and the EuroMillions, and it means everyone is a winner!
