Every week we are praying that this will be the week our Lotto numbers are called.
But behind the jackpots and the scratch cards are people who benefit without getting the right numbers.
The National Lottery invests 30c of every euro into their Good Causes Fund, which has been running since 1987.
Every year, nearly 4,000 groups from sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage and the Irish Language benefit from funding and more than €5.6m has been spent on these causes since it began.
Liz Duffy said rural areas need a ‘heart’ or people could go without seeing others for a long time.
She set up the group in 2003 to find somewhere to gather people whenever they needed to, after a local funeral hit home they had nowhere to catch up that didn’t involve a pub.
She said: “We had a big funeral in the area and had nowhere to gather. So a few of us thought about the town hall, which wasn’t used and wasn’t in great shape. So we went in and cleaned it up and used it for the funeral.”
When the group started, they didn’t even have a proper chair but they began to apply for grants and won funding from the Lotto which made a huge difference.

She added: “It meant we could build it up, get better equipment, chairs, tables. We revamped the kitchen and the toilets and made the place more comfortable.
“Now we have lunches, a big Christmas party, the local GAA can use it, the Active Retirement Group.
“We even had a book launch, Laura Price held her launch here and if we didn’t have the centre, she would have had to leave the area.”
