Today is the 25th birthday of the National Lottery and is a moment to celebrate the extraordinary impact The National Lottery has had on the UK.
People across the UK will post crossed finger selfies and pics on social media to help celebrate. This is our way of saying thank you to National Lottery players for their huge contribution to charities and community groups across the UK. National Lottery players for contributing around £30 million to charities and community groups every week.
Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund our New Beginnings Project assists the refugee & asylum community in Blackburn with Darwen to enable them to help each other to settle into life in the UK. For more information, please click here
So, thank you National Lottery players, from everyone here at YMCA Blackburn #NationalLottery25
On 11th November 2018, trustees, staff and volunteers attended an informal service at Blackburn Old Cemetery where they took part in the two minutes silence in respect of all those who have died in wars and conflicts. They then laid a wreath on the tomb of Mr John Hayhurst who died from injuries received whist on YMCA service in the first world war.
Thank You to The Friends of Old Blackburn Cemetery and Cemsearch for all their help and support
