British star Alesha Dixon has spoken out in praise of National Lottery players and says they are changing lives
Alesha Dixon thinks National Lottery players are changing lives.
The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge has praised the nation on their incredible contribution to charitable schemes, simply by purchasing a ticket every week, after a staggering £179 million was raised for arts and community projects last month.
She said: "People do the lottery every month because they want to change their lives, even if you don't win, you are still changing someone's life and I think that's a brilliant way to do the lottery. Knowing how much money is going to good causes makes me want to do it every week because there's a bigger picture going on, which is incredible"
The 37-year-old brunette beauty celebrated the record-breaking news by attending the Jimi Hendrix Museum in London dressed as the late music legend after the museum was restored recently and reopened to the public thanks to £1.2 million raised from the National Lottery.
Speaking of the event, she explained: "I don't even know how much the British public are aware of how much money every month goes to good causes from the National Lottery. It was even a pleasant surprise to me. It's great to let the public know that they have single-handedly had an involvement in all these wonderful projects and every time you do the lottery you are helping someone which is great."
