The Scottish Seabird Centre is throwing its doors open for free as a thank you to National Lottery players.

This National Lottery-funded North Berwick visitor attraction is taking part in the #ThanksToYou campaign and saying a massive thank you to people who have raised money for good causes by simply buying a lottery ticket.

The seabird centre is offering any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket on Monday, December 3, Tuesday, December 4 or Wednesday, December 5 with free family entry to its Discovery Centre where they can use interactive live cameras to see seabirds and marine wildlife in their natural habitat.

Launching the UK-wide campaign, TV presenter and Strictly Come Dancing star Katie Piper said “I think people forget that when they’re buying a National Lottery ticket they’re helping to support great causes all over the UK, and hundreds of these are right on their doorstep.

“This campaign is is a brilliant opportunity for projects across the UK to say thanks and for people to explore their local National Lottery-funded venues and have a wonderful day out.”

Nigel Ward, Interim CEO at the Scottish Seabird Centre, said: “The funding we received from the National Lottery helped fund the opening of the centre back in 2000 and we’ve since had support for our education programme and puffin festival. Taking part in this campaign is our way of saying thank you and giving a little something back.”
