National Lottery Award Winners 2010
The winners of the National Lottery Awards for 2010 were revealed live on Saturday night in a special television awards ceremony hosted by John Barrowman. As regular readers will recall from our previous coverage of the National Lottery Awards, there were 21 lottery projects in the running for a total of 7 awards, and the fate of all the contenders was determined by public vote. If you happened to see the National Lottery Awards show then you will already know who won and who didn't, but for those of you who didn't catch it live on television, here are the details of the projects that were declared category winners...
Best Arts Project
The winner of the award for Best Arts Project was the Beacon Hill Film Project in North Tyneside which enables young people with severe learning difficulties to become fully-fledged filmmakers.
Best Education Project
The award for Best Education Project went to HMS Cavalier, a former World War II destroyer which now serves as the National Destroyer Memorial in Chatham. The ship is dedicated to the thousands of sailors who lost their lives in World War II and is used in a variety of educational programmes.
Best Environment Project
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was named the winner of the award for Best Environment Project. This project is in its fourth year of educating people about the importance of bumblebees and how their declining numbers can have a large impact on both the countryside and our food.
Best Health Project
The award for Best Health Project was won by Access to Citizenship, a project which helps people with learning disabilities to enjoy a full and active role in society. Offering both educational and developmental courses, Access to Citizenship is doing a lot of good in raising awareness of those with learning disabilities.
Best Heritage Project
The Isle of Wight Railway Restoration Project allows members of the public to experience travelling on steam trains that used to be commonplace a century ago. Anyone who has enjoyed a journey courtesy of the Isle of Wight Restoration Project will be particularly pleased that it has now won the award for the Best Heritage Project.
Best Sports Project
The winner of the award for Best Sports Project went to the Children's Able and Disabled Sport project, otherwise known as CADS. This project organises fully inclusive sporting activities for children in Greater Manchester and Cheshire which all can participate in regardless of whether they have a disability or not.
Best Voluntary/Charity Project
The winner of this category was the Little Havens Children's Hospice in Essex. This charitable organisation exists to support children and teenagers who are nearing the end of their lives or not expecting to survive into adulthood.
