No fall in support from Heritage Lottery Fund


We were disappointed that our views were not accurately represented in your article, 'Lottery crisis hits urban projects' (AJ 17.4.03). The article also incorrectly credited us with helping to fund the Millennium Bridge and Peckham Library.

While forecasts for Lottery income are showing a slight fall, the Heritage Lottery Fund does not anticipate a 'drought in funds'. Indeed, at about £350 million, we expect to make a similar level of commitment to heritage projects in the next year as we have for the past two years.

Demand is high and we will continue for the foreseeable future to respond by supporting projects - large and small - which open up the nation's heritage to a wider audience.
