Paper and digital tickets/scratchcards for all National Lottery games qualify.

Sue Tapliss, Mill Director, said “We’re delighted to be taking part in The National Lottery Open Week this year. We’ve been fortunate to receive National Lottery funding, which has enabled us to create a sustainable future for Whitchurch Silk Mill and survive this crisis. So this is our way of saying thank you to everyone who has bought a National Lottery ticket, helped us on our journey, and made a vital contribution to supporting good causes. We’re excited to welcome you back soon”
