Samantha is encouraging the public to nominate their local heroes for a National Lottery Award.
Samantha is urging people to recognise the individuals and organisations that have done extraordinary work with the help of National Lottery funding.
The National Lottery Awards are an annual event celebrating ordinary people and organisations doing extraordinary things.
Last year’s event saw over 1,300 nominees, and this year the search is on for the most inspirational individuals and projects of 2023.
Particularly in these challenging times, the National Lottery is keen to highlight those who have gone the extra mile to make a difference in their communities.
Any individual or project that has received National Lottery funding is eligible for nomination.
“Thanks to National Lottery players, £30 million is raised for good causes around the UK every single week.”
“There are so many inspirational people and projects who go above and beyond to make a difference in their communities, and the National Lottery Awards are our chance to thank them for their incredible acts of kindness.”
The National Lottery Awards will honour community champions across various categories, including Community & Charity, Arts, Culture & Film, Sport, Heritage, Environment, Young Hero (Under 25s), and a Special Achievement Award.
