Camelot, operator of The National Lottery, is proud to support the National Press Awards.

With around 80 per cent of adults playing on an annual basis, The National Lottery is at the heart of communities across the UK and benefits millions of people’s lives – just as national, regional and local media do every day.

To date, players have raised over £36 billion for National Lottery Good Causes. Thanks to the invaluable support from the national, regional and local press over the past 22 years, National Lottery winners – which now include more than 4,400 millionaires – have been able to share their good news.
The press has also been essential at raising awareness of the 500,000-plus funding awards that have been made to Good Causes the length and breadth of the UK – something of which we all can be rightly proud.

We wish all of this year’s finalists the very best of luck.

JCJournalists' Charity

Life is unpredictable and disaster can happen without warning - and for many reasons. It may be sudden unemployment, an illness that leaves you unable to work, a leaking roof that you can’t afford to repair, or the need to take care of a loved one who suddenly needs constant attention.

The Journalists Charity was set up 151 years ago to help such people: desperate people who have no one else to turn to. Over the years the charity has supported thousands of journalists who called on us in times of unexpected crisis. We even run our own sheltered and accommodation, care and extra care homes.

We need your help.

This is your charity - a charity run by journalists for journalists. We have to look after our own.
