500,000th National Lottery award for family support charity

Thanks to you, a small community project is able to help more families help themselves.

Ipswich 4 Family, who are the 500,000th National Lottery funded project, reach out to disadvantaged families, offering practical and emotional support through 1–1 mentoring. Their £9,950 award will help the team train more family mentors and so grow the charity. In fact, 90% of our awards are under £10,000 and this is just another example of how a relatively small sum can go a long way.

By playing The National Lottery, you’ve helped support projects that may never have survived and thrived. Karen Bradley, Culture Secretary was at Ipswich 4 Family to mark the occasion, and presented the cheque to Dot Cordle, Chair of the Trustees, saying:

“The 500,000th Lottery grant is a significant milestone, and the latest example of how the proceeds from people buying tickets has helped transform lives and support local communities across the country.”
