Get involved in Crossed Finger Selfie Day 2023!
On Tuesday 14 November thousands of people will post crossed finger selfies across Twitter and Instagram to acknowledge their Heritage Fund grant and make some collective noise about the fantastic good causes that The National Lottery funds.
We're looking forward to shining a spotlight on some of the magnificent heritage projects we support. Join the online heritage conversation – last year we got #ThanksToYou trending on the day and reached millions of people!
14 November marks the first day that National Lottery tickets went on sale, 29 years ago in 1994 and since then more than £47billion has been raised for good causes in the areas of heritage, arts, sport, film and community.
How can I get involved?
Share your crossed finger selfie pictures on social media with a message of thanks to National Lottery players and include some information about your heritage project. You could also feature part of the heritage in the background of the picture, our logo and branding, or other staff members and volunteers involved in the project.
Tag us in at @HeritageFundUK and use the hashtag #ThanksToYou.
