The Helix was announced as a National Lottery Award winner on Friday 19 September. The nationwide public vote chose the Helix to scoop Best Environment Project at the awards show called National Lottery Stars 2014.

The Helix was one of 49 finalist chosen from over 700 entries hoping to grab one of the seven awards. The £41 million parkland project has enjoyed success over the past months with 15,000 people visiting during the first two months of the Kelpies opening in the summer, as well as receiving the Green Apple Environment Award in August.
