Issuing a press release

A press release will tell journalists about your grant and what your project will achieve. It is also a great way to thank National Lottery Players for making it all possible.

Depending on the size and scope of your project you can tell local, regional and even national newspapers as well as the broadcast media (radio and television).

In case you are not used to sending out press releases we have created a range of templates to help you.

Remember to include your own logo and ours at the top of the page. Download our logos

Good photographs also help to get a press release published and we offer detailed advice and examples. See guidance below.

Also remember: Send the draft press release to your grants officer at least a week before you’re due to send it out. This gives us time to check the information and approve it
