Lottery helps power boxers to medal haul

CONGRATULATIONS to the Northern Ireland boxing team for their extraordinary medal haul at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The performances of Paddy Barnes, Michael Conlan, Michaela Walsh, Alana Audley-Murphy and Joe Fitzpatrick, to name but a few, did Northern Ireland proud.

National Lottery players have raised more than £1bn for projects in Northern Ireland, with more than £128m going towards sport. This includes £3.1m to boxing .

All who play the National Lottery and help towards funding sport here should feel proud.
