Lottery Games generate massive jackpots, and most of us have a go at winning a lottery every now and again.
Winners & Charities
The temptation to try to hit that big win is one that lottery game providers certainly play too.
We hear a lot about the winners of lottery jackpots and the amounts that they win.
What we do not hear a lot about are Charitable causes that benefit from you and I playing these lottery games. We are going to highlight a few cases that we do feel are worth a mention.
Chris and Colin Weir from Scotland are of course famous for winning the largest lottery jackpot in the UK.
They recently set up a Charity to aid projects in Scotland. They seek to help groups who work in areas including Health, Sport and Animal Welfare.
They are the holders of the envious title of having won the largest EuroMillions Jackpot on record. It has enabled them to help a lot of people. The current Charity though is targeted explicitly to assisting people and organisations in Scotland.
Heritage Lottery Fund
Rochester Cathedral is another beneficiary of the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Heritage Lottery fund distributes a share of the income made on the UK National Lottery.
In this instance, Rochester Cathedral is the recipient of a massive £3.55 million in restoration funds.
It will enable it to conduct building work that will open up its Library and Crypt to the public. According to reports, the Cathedral is the owner of an Anglo-Saxon document called the Textus Roffensis.
It according to the BBC helped inspire the Magna Carta. I am sure that there are bookworms that do appreciate this.
As for ourselves the sight and sounds of our athletes winning Olympic Medals is good enough reason for us to continue trying our luck out on lottery games.
A wide variety of athletes benefited from Lottery funding and that together with the hope that we one day too can set up a Trust fund to help people will keep us trying our luck out on a range of Lottery Jackpots.
