Camelot – supporting the Society of Editors since 2001

Camelot is proud to support the Society of Editors’ Annual Conference.

This year, The National Lottery is celebrating its 25th birthday. In that time, it has delivered a life-changing £40 billion for Good Causes – far more than the original Government forecast of £1 billion per year. This equates to more than 565,000 individual awards made across the UK – an average of over 200 lottery grants in every UK postcode district. It has also paid out over £71 billion in prizes and created more than 5,500 millionaires or multi-millionaires.

The National Lottery is at the heart of communities across the UK and benefits millions of people’s lives – just as the national, regional and local media do every day. Thanks to your invaluable support over the past 25 years, National Lottery winners have been able to share their good news, missing ticket-holders have been united with their previously unclaimed winnings and a huge range of projects have been able to highlight the life-changing difference they make thanks to vital National Lottery funding.

Camelot wishes the Society of Editors a hugely successful conference.

Wine is the UK’s favourite and most widely consumed alcoholic drink, enjoyed by over 33 million people across the country. But for too long, wine drinkers have been penalised when it comes to the tax they pay on their drink of choice. Since 2015, wine duty has increased by 12%, while duty on spirits has increased by less than 2% and beer duty has decreased by 0.2%. Wine Drinkers UK – a collection of wine lovers, makers and sellers – is campaigning to address this unfair treatment, calling on the Government to cut back wine tax at the next Budget.
