Lottery fund chair to answer questions online

Sir Clive Booth will host a webchat this afternoon to answer questions on the Big Lottery Fund's plans

Sir Clive Booth, chair of the Big Lottery Fund, will this afternoon hold an online question and answer session on the fund's priorities for the future.

The webchat, part of the fund's Big Thinking consultation, will allow charities to pose questions directly to Booth about its plans to distribute future lottery cash.

The consultation, which runs until the end of February, will guide the fund's plans to distribute £2bn over the next six years.

"We are striving to make the most of the money we have available to us," said Booth. "It's vital that all those who have benefited or hope to benefit from lottery good cause funding give us their view."

Booth has previously shown his support for allocating lottery money to charity. He faced criticism after he attacked Tory proposals for the lottery, which he said would take money away from the voluntary sector (Third Sector, 30 January 2008, page 1).

To take part in the webchat, visit www.big-thinking.org.uk between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.
