Many people playing or observing the lottery fail to understand the huge benefits of the funds raised through this state run gambling.

As a part of the increased funding deserving projects, 4.7 pence in every pound paid into the British National Lottery goes to the Community Fund, a body whose remit is to provide money for charities, voluntary and community groups. One of the aims of the fund is to alleviate poverty and disadvantage in society.
Recently the Community Fund distributed £3 million of UK lottery draw money to various deserving projects.
As part of this award, £883,242 was given to the Prince’s Trust Soundlive project to encourage disadvantaged young people have an appreciation of music. This has an admirable track record of boosting the confidence and self-esteem of those involved, leading to increased participation in employment, education and training opportunities.

The impression many people get of those who win large prizes on the British National Lottery, theEuropean lottery or any of the other big global lotteries is that they then lead extravagant lifestyles.
Chris and Susan Bowers from Northamptonshire have shown this not to be the case.
The couple won £3.5 million in the Eurolottery draw ten months ago but have found the win has not changed them as people. Chris was due to retire soon in ant case so he simply left work earlier than expected. The couple also bought a new bungalow to live in, and a Land Rover and Mercedes car but have tried not to be too extravagant.
As Chris told his local newspaper, “It changed our lives, but only in the way that it made things easier. We are still the same people, and have the same friends and family.”
It seems the happiest lottery winners are this who are sensible and keep their feet on the ground. And it is also good to keep a sense of humour about the whole thing: Chris Bowers added an aside “Besides, my wife wouldn’t let me squander it all.”
