The team behind the success of the RAF Museum in London and Cosford picked up their National Lottery Award for Best Heritage project at a star-studded ceremony which will be broadcast on BBC One on Monday 21 September.Staff and volunteers from the RAF Museum rubbed shoulders with a host of celebrities such as John Barrowman, Rachel Riley and Julian Clary as they hit the red carpet to accept their honour.Millions of TV viewers will see the Museum recognised for its popular First World War in the Air Exhibition, which brings to life the compelling stories of the people, innovations, engineering and aircraft of the Great War. Over 65,000 people have visited the exhibition, with thousands more accessing information on the Museum’s websites. A short film featuring a visit from actor and musician Martin Kemp, who presented them with their award, will also be shown on the programme, The National Lottery Stars, at 22.35 on BBC One.The show celebrates the incredible work of projects, funded by National Lottery players who have now raised £34 billion for good causes since the Lottery started in 1994.Karen Whitting, RAF Museum Director of Public Programmes said: “It is a great honour to win a National Lottery Award and the awards ceremony was an unforgettable experience for all of us.“A heartfelt thanks to the National Lottery for providing us with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase the work we do and the difference we make in our communities - to an audience of millions. “Thank you to everyone who voted for us and for the support of National Lottery players.”John Barrowman, who will presenting the show for the sixth year, added: “The National Lottery Awards celebrate the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects as voted for by the Great British public. They are all about making the unsung heroes behind life-changing projects feel like stars for the night and showing off their amazing work to viewers.“Every year I am struck by the variety of projects The National Lottery funds and how they are making communities up and down the country better places to live. You won’t be disappointed with the stories of this year’s winners and everyone who plays the National Lottery will feel proud of the difference they make.”There are seven categories in the National Lottery Awards, reflecting the main areas of Lottery funding: arts, education, environment, health, heritage, sport, and voluntary/charity. The RAF Museum fought off six other challengers in a public vote to win the Best Heritage Project. It will receive a £2,000 cash prize to spend on the project as well as a coveted National Lottery Awards trophy. National Lottery players have been changing lives for 20 years - they currently raise over £34 million every week for projects across the UK. The National Lottery Awards recognise and celebrate the difference that Lottery-funded organisations, both large and small, make to local communities the length and breadth of the UK. The First World War in the Air exhibition is supported by BAE Systems and The Heritage Lottery Fund.
If you missed the show and are resident in the UK you can watch it on BBC iPlayer until 21 October 2015.
