The National Lottery helped communities across the UK host their own street parties and get-togethers during the Jubilee weekend. For example, The Platinum Jubilee Big Lunch, which was made possible by over £2Million in National Lottery funding. Causes from across the UK applied for a share of £22Million of National Lottery funding committed to the Platinum Jubilee across community, arts, sport and environmental initiatives to mark the milestone. Hundreds of grants were made to organisations the length and breadth of the country.
