Scotland’s sporting community is getting behind The National Lottery’s 25th Birthday celebrations with the launch of #ThanksToYou, a campaign to thank Lottery players for the support they have given Scottish sport since 1994.
For one week only, from 23 November to 1 December, National Lottery players can take advantage of hundreds of exclusive offers and treats and see first-hand the good causes they help to fund.
Lottery-funded projects across Scotland's world class sporting system will be taking part in the UK-wide celebration, with iconic sporting venues and clubs already getting behind the scheme.
Scottish Rugby are offering National Lottery players a free tour of the national team’s home ground, Murrayfield Stadium, on 27 November, while football fans can enjoy a 50% discount on the Scottish Football Museum tour of Hampden Stadium from 25 to 29 November.
Sports clubs, community sport hubs and Scottish Governing Bodies can all get involved and register an activity to say thank you to National Lottery players.
Whether it’s a taster session, tour, meet and greet or access to a sport facility, sports have an opportunity to give a little something back to Lottery players. People simply show their National Lottery ticket to qualify.
If you have received National Lottery funding and want to have a role in The National Lottery’s 25th Birthday celebrations and say thank you to players, you can register now for #ThanksToYou and then download the resources in the digital toolkit.
sportscotland chief executive Stewart Harris said: “#ThanksToYou is a great opportunity for the sporting community to get involved in The National Lottery’s 25th Birthday and thank players for the positive impact they have on both grassroots and high performance sport across Scotland.
“The National Lottery has made – and continues to make – a difference to sport throughout Scotland, with so many invaluable projects and good causes boosted by Lottery funds which help deliver sport and its many benefits to millions.”
Last year #ThanksToYou saw 500 exclusive activities offered, with even more expected to be offered up as part of the 25th Birthday.
