National Lottery Thank You

November 23rd 2017

December fun thanks to The National Lottery! From 13th to 15th December 2017, we are offering free parking to National Lottery players.

Woodhorn Museum will be offering free parking to National Lottery players between 13th – 15th December 2017. We are one of 350 participating National Lottery funded visitor attractions across the UK in saying ‘thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

Woodhorn received over £10million from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help us with our redevelopment back in 2006.  

Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said, “December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7bn National Lottery funding since 1994.  This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”
The idea is simple: any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard on 13th ,14th or 15th December can have free parking at Woodhorn on that day. 
At Woodhorn, thanks to National Lottery players, were able to redevelop the historic site including building our stunning new Cutter Building which houses our main displays and the famous Pitmen Painters’ art collection.

Additional Lottery information

National Lottery players raise, on average, over £30 million each week for projects all over the country. In total £37 billion has been raised for Good Causes since The National Lottery began in 1994 and more than 510,000 individual grants have been made across the UK, the majority (70 per cent) of which are for £10,000 or less, helping small projects make a big difference in their community!

Thanks to National Lottery players, the Heritage Lottery Fund invests money to help people across the UK explore, enjoy and protect the heritage they care about - from the archaeology under our feet to the historic parks and buildings we love, from precious memories and collections to rare wildlife. @heritagelottery.
