We need State lotto for events

IT was extremely disappointing to read in the Telegraph (News, October 4) about the number of events that may be cancelled because of funding issues, such as the Foyle Cup, Culture Night and the Belfast Mela.

Perhaps it is time for the Northern Ireland Assembly to launch our own State lottery to help fund these events.
