National Lottery #ThanksToYou - 16 November 2018

On the 8th of December 2018, we are offering a free cup of tea or coffee to National Lottery players that purchases a ticket to visit Yr Ysgwrn’s historic farmhouse.

We are one of hundreds of participating National Lottery-funded visitor attractions across the UK saying ‘thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

The idea is simple: any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard will receive a free cup of tea or coffee when purchasing a ticket to visit the farmhouse.

Yr Ysgwrn has received £3.1 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The money has funded the redevelopment of the site to present Hedd Wyn’s story and associated themes to future generations.

Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said:

“December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7.8bn National Lottery funding since 1994.  This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”

Terms and conditions

● One National Lottery ticket provides free tea, filter coffee, or squash for up to one family of six when purchasing entry tickets for the Ysgwrn farmhouse tour.
● All National Lottery games qualify (including both National Lottery draw-based games and National Lottery Scratchcards). Proof of purchase of a National Lottery game can be either a hard copy ticket or a digital ticket.

● Yr Ysgwrn has the right to refuse entry in the unlikely event of the venue reaching capacity, as well as other circumstances outside of its control.
● Tickets for the free tea/coffee/squash will be given at the reception area at Yr Ysgwrn when visitors arrive with their National Lottery tickets, and buy an entry ticket for the farmhouse tour.
● The promoter is Snowdonia National Park Authority.

The National Lottery

National Lottery players raise, on average, £30 million each week for projects all over the country. In total £38 billion has been raised for Good Causes since The National Lottery began in 1994 and more than 535,000 individual grants have been made across the UK, the majority (70 per cent) of which are for £10,000 or less, helping small projects make a big difference in their community!
