Camelot – supporting the Society of Editors since 2001

Camelot is proud to support the Society of Editors’ National Press Awards.

Since its launch in 1994, The National Lottery has delivered a life-changing £39 billion for Good Causes, with more than 535,000 individual awards made across the UK – an average of over 190 lottery grants in every postcode district. It has also awarded over £69 billion in prizes and created more than 5,100 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 awards evening.
