Portsmouth Celebrates 20 Years of National Lottery | 6 November’14

As the lottery encroaches it’s adulthood with being in operation for two decades, nations all over the UK celebrate with gratitude to the popular UK lottery for changing their lives for the better.  Multimillion winners from all over the nation like Wales and London have all come together to earmark the auspicious occasion.

Portsmouth winners were not left out of the celebrations, as the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard became a buzzing hub of activity where winners gathered to celebrate the National Lottery’s Anniversary.  It’s serendipitous that the group met here as lucky lotto winner Sharon Hall who won £1 million was previously a Master at Arms in the Royal Navy.  Even more so, the Historic Dockyard has received £40 million in National Lottery funding over the years for maintenance, upkeep and improvement.  The UK Lotto has over the years seen to it that it not only grants winners millions – over 3,600 millionaires nationally, but also pumps billions (around £32 billion, nationally) back into more than 430, 000 community projects such as charities, sports, health, heritage, education, environment, voluntary sectors and the arts.

Just focusing on Portsmouth sees that the PO postcode district alone has had 33 millionaire winners, as well as 374 prizes of £50, 000 doled out.  The cities communities have benefitted by the lottery awarding over 811 grants to much of the local organizations mentioned above; that all roughly translates to around £145 million over the past two decades.  Examples of these upliftment projects are The Mary Rose museum, the giant £35 million grant to the Millennium Commission for the redevelopment of the Portsmouth Harbour in 1997 and the Jubilee Sailing Trusts’ grant of £65 million for the building the tall ship, ‘Tenacious’.

Players can feel confident that they are not only playing for a large windfall for themselves, but that huge portions of their input go back into their very own community and local projects.  Being one of the most lucrative and frequent payout lottery games has ensured the National Lottery’s longevity and reputation as one of the best and most beloved games in the world.  The game allows around £33 million to be raised weekly for projects and provides for around 6 million winners too.
