This year is the 25th birthday of The National Lottery, and we’re excited to be a part of the celebrations by joining the #ThanksToYou campaign.

The campaign celebrates the contribution of National Lottery players in supporting good causes over the past 25 years.

Since the National Lottery’s first draw took place on 19 November 1994, more than £40bn has been raised for good causes in arts, sport, heritage and community.  That’s more than £30m a week making a difference to the lives of people and communities across the whole of the UK.

As a recipient of National Lottery funding, Norfolk Museums Service has been able to share, even more, our county’s rich and diverse history through our ten museum sites. We are one of the hundreds of participating National Lottery-funded organisations across the UK who are taking part in the #ThanksToYou campaign in this special birthday year.
