The Government and gambling firm Camelot are celebrating what they say is the biggest programme of civic regeneration since the 19th century.
November 6 is to be National Lottery Day and celebrations will recognise the 10-year threshold of the lucky-numbers game that has funded landscapes, equipment and buildings including the Eden Project.
Events will run throughout summer and up to the big day. In that decade £15 billion has gone on over 160,000 good causes and the National Lottery reckons “this amounts to the biggest programme of civic regeneration since the 19th century.”
Arts minister Estelle Morris has unveiled plans to search for the nation’s favourite projects by a national vote. Winners will be announced on 6 November. In the run up there will be activities such as tours and promotions.
