Lottery supports our local athletes

Published 28/03/2014

Congratulations to Kelly Gallagher for winning a Gold medal in the Super-G women's skiing event at the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi. Her performance did Northern Ireland proud and she is an inspirational role model for young people.

Everyone who plays the National Lottery helps to fund athletes like Kelly. Their funding means athletes can train full-time and access world-class coaching and facilities, such as the Sports Institute Northern Ireland, which, in turn, increases their chances of winning medals.

In addition to funding Olympic and Paralympic athletes, National Lottery funding is improving facilities and providing a welcome boost to sports clubs throughout Northern Ireland, so everyone has the chance to enjoy sport.

National Lottery players should feel proud of the difference their contribution is making.


Director, National Lottery Good Causes
