This year, thanks to National Lottery players, up to £600million is being used by charities and organisations to help those affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak across the communities, the arts, heritage and sport.
This includes up to £300million in funding support from the National Lottery Community Fund which is being used to help groups best placed to support people and communities through the crisis – from helping support food banks to causes that combat loneliness and isolation, support for the elderly and projects that aid health in the community.
