GABBY: Hello and welcome to The National Lottery Live.
The two big money draws are coming up ?
Also, a chance to find out how
you can vote in this year's National Lottery Awards.
And pushing the button tonight, very special guests,
Lotto winners Michele and Kevin Jones.
Let's hope a bit of their luck rubs off!
First though, with a top prize of ?500,000,
ALAN: OK, start the Thunderball machine please, Karen!
ALAN: OK, start the Thunderball machine please, Darren!
Earlier this evening in front of our independent adjudicator the first
fundable machine was started in five balls selected -- Thunderball.
Three, 25, 26, 36, 38. And now the Thunderball itself, Darren. We will
see which one is chosen, that is number 13. Excellent.
GABBY: Now, a chance to see how the money you raise as Lottery
funding supports so many projects across the country.
As part of this year's National Lottery Awards,
49 projects have been selected as finalists,
and over the next four weeks we'll be meeting some of them.
Tonight, the categories are: heritage, education and arts.
We're going to meet Rudy. He went to a concentration camp. I stayed in
Barrick 57, which is that one, then I moved to 65 to be nearer Paul and
my dad who were in 68. They are immersed in the history and the time
and it makes it so much more real to them. I'm very grateful for what the
le Terry -- the lottery has funded, because we haven't learned our
lesson and the next generation must know about it. First-hand experience
is important and this is the nearest we can get to it. This is the first
of its kind in Europe, this is all very clever, seven separate
computers and a laser projector, which will now, allow us not only to
show images of our survivors in 3D but for them to answer questions. My
name is Jeff, I'm 92 years old, I teach on a voluntary basis. About
2009 I lost my wife. I'm not normally a very lonely person, but I
do get fed up being by myself. I spoke to a friend of my daughter's
and she said, do you want to go to school and teach the children to
read and I eventually rang Age UK and asked if I could teach at a
school. The best thing is it gets me out of the house, but the second
best thing is I adore being with the children and I hope they say the
same thing about me. I would say anybody who doesn't have anything to
do during the day and has a few spare hours, please go along to your
local school and volunteer. Once you meet the children you won't want to
give it up. The library has always been somewhere he have to be quiet
and the traditional reasons for coming to the library has started to
die out, performance work could take libraries into the future.
Aren't you the librarian? You are confusing me with my sister!
LAUGHTER I feel it is bringing an audience
who wouldn't get to see any kind of performance. It is equally as
rewarding for the performer and the audience.
I'm not in a very good mood because my other half has done nothing but
complain about my snoring, in the end, I said I tell you what, you
arrive. If you take a quick look at the audience today this is
definitely the way forward. It's good, thank you very much.
What a wonderful film. You can find out about all the 49
finalist projects up for awards, and vote for them too,
by going online to bbc.co.uk/lottery Now, the Lotto draw
and Millionaire Raffle are coming up in a just a minute,
but first, let's meet our very special guests, Lotto
winners Kevin and Michele Lovely to have you here. Remind us
how much it was you won, Michele. 6.1 million. If I win the lottery I
will... I will have more quality time to spend with the family. And
that's what you've got? Definitely. Kevin, you didn't stop working when
you won the lottery. I was rushing to start work at 5:30am the next day
and people relied on me so I got up at 4:30am and went to work and went
through half of my shift. You called your boss to tell him, didn't you?
That's right, I told him I needed to get back to the depot to make a
claim for the jackpot and he said, get the bus back as quickly as you
can even if I have to drive it myself. What a lovely bass and it's
a pleasure to meet you. In a moment you are going to be pressing the
button because the time has come to play Lotto.
ALAN: Darren, let's release those Lotto balls!
Remember there are even more chances to become a millionaire now.
Thank you to Tom from Manhattan Beach, California, he just happened
to be passing. We are using Lancelot and set of balls number five. ?30
million have been won in the Lotto this past week and the raffle.
We are very international! It's the moment you've been waiting
for, press the button. Good luck, everyone!
