Working in partnership with national broadcaster ITV and design studio Art&Graft, The National Lottery launches the first ever 40’ animated advertisement supporting Team GB athletes in their quest for Rio glory.
Launching its campaign Camelot governance detailed that as an organization The National Lottery has helped raise £5 billion for UK grassroots sports initiatives and that the company would continue to support the country’s sporting infrastructure.
Its first campaign advertisement ‘The Road to Rio’ was launched last night on ITV channels and thanked lottery customers for supporting Team GB.
Arabella Gilchrist, Head of Brand for The National Lottery, commented on the campaign launch:
