Liam says "Thank you"

Thanks to you there are National Lottery funded projects across the UK that help people in need every day.

People like Liam. In December 2019 he had a serious accident at home, falling down the stairs and fracturing his head in three places. The fall meant he needed to learn to walk and talk again.

As well as recovering physically, Liam needed to get his mental health back on track. And he found the help and support he needed with National Lottery funded Martin Gallier Project.

Liam describes his experience at Martin Gallier as "life-changing" and says the project volunteers all support each other when things get tough. After experiencing that support, Liam has become a volunteer himself, supporting others through difficult experiences.

The Martin Gallier Project is just one of hundreds of thousands of community projects you support every time you play. And now, more than ever, community is so important. Which is why, thanks to you, up to £300Million will go to support our local communities in these exceptional times. The funds will be used to support some of the most vulnerable people across the UK.

It’s also why this TV ad is made up of people connected to National Lottery funded projects who want to say ‘thank you’ for the difference you make every time you play. We hope it brings a smile to your face. Thank you.
