NI lottery would do more for lo­cal peo­ple

Belfast Telegraph - - LETTERS -

IT was dis­ap­point­ing to read (News, May 8) about the fund­ing cri­sis with the Belfast Marathon.

We have also had is­sues sur­round­ing the launch of the air am­bu­lance ser­vice and with the arts.

It would be in­ter­est­ing to know how much fund­ing (per­cent­age-wise) from the UK National Lottery finds its way back to North­ern Ire­land.

Surely, though, the an­swer to guar­an­tee fund­ing com­ing to North­ern Ire­land to fund these sort of events is for North­ern Ire­land to cre­ate its own national lottery?

Please note that let­ters should be short and to the point. Let­ters will be edited as deemed nec­es­sary and should be au­then­ti­cated with a full name and postal ad­dress, not nec­es­sar­ily for pub­li­ca­tion. A day­time tele­phone num­ber would also be use­ful.
