Lottery free entry to National Trust sites

By Rebecca Black

There will be consolation prize for National Lottery players who perhaps haven't scooped the jackpot - with free entry to a number of National Trust properties across Northern Ireland.

The organisation will waive entry fees for the millionaire hopefuls for a day as a thank you for the funding it has received from the lottery.

Anyone with a National Lottery ticket or scratch card will enjoy free entry next Wednesday to the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre, Castle Ward, Rowallane Garden and Mount Stewart.

Fundraising manager Wendy Elliott said: "Without grant support like this we wouldn't have been able to undertake some of our most important and innovative conservation work.

"Grant income, as well as help from members, supporters and volunteers, allows us to look after special places for ever, for everyone. This is a small gesture of our thanks to National Lottery players."
