SNAPSHOT: Funding pinnacle

James Durant, a former British team climber, puts up a plaque recording that the Birmingham Climbing Centre has received funding from the National Lottery. It was among the first 100 such plaques erected this week following a launch by Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell at the British Museum, which received £30m of Lottery money for the spectacular glass canopy spanning its courtyard. Ten thousand plaques, designed to remind people how £14bn of 'good causes' money has been spent, will be in place for the 10th anniversary of the Lottery next year, and eventually most of the 150,000 projects that have received funding will receive one.

"We must explain how the Lottery is working if we want people to continue to support it and feel good about how their money is being spent," said Jowell.
