National Lottery thanks players with free days out in Sussex

The National Lottery is thanking its players with offers and discounts as a thank you for the £7.7billion of funding awarded to more than 42,000 heritage projects across the United Kingdom over the last 23 years.

As a way of saying ‘thank you’ this Christmas, around 400 National Lottery-funded heritage attractions across the UK are opening their doors or offering other treats or discounts for anyone arriving with a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard from 11-17 December.

Maria Caulfield MP has backed the scheme, which includes Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft in her constituency.

The Lewes MP said “National Lottery players have raised £7.7 billion towards 42,000 heritage projects across the UK, and this is an excellent way to thank them in the run up to Christmas.”

“Locally there are some great places to visit including Ditchling Museum, Sheffiled Park and Towner Art Gallery. So even if you aren’t a National Lottery winner, you can save your ticket for a great day out!”
