THE National Lottery has visited an environmental scheme at Holy Child Primary School in west Belfast to mark its 18th birthday on November 19.

The ‘green’ activity and adventure area cost £60,000 and was covered by a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.

Environment Minister Alex Attwood said: “I am very impressed with all the hard work done by the school to create this activity garden and adventure area.”

Dianne Thompson, chief executive of National Lottery operator Camelot, said: “Since the National Lottery began in 1994, £900 million of National Lottery funding has been invested in Northern Ireland through 18,000 grants.

“The excellent Holy Child project is a fine example of how lottery players benefit the community.”
