What do Active Northumberland, Alnwick Playhouse and Northumberland Deaf Club have in common?
The answer is that they have all been supported by the National Lottery.
Every time you play, you help to fund everything from social groups for older people and parenting support networks to local sports clubs and restoration projects.
In fact, the National Lottery has just awarded its 500,000th grant since it began in 1994.
Everyone who plays should be proud of the life-changing difference they make.
