About People's Postcode Lottery
People's Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery which raises vital funding to support a huge range of good causes. The Wildlife Trusts are fortunate to receive generous support from players of People's Postcode Lottery through our own lottery (find out more details here). Since 2016, players have raised over £9 million for The Wildlife Trusts, so that we can care for wildlife and wild places, stand up for nature under threat and help people connect with nature through outdoor education programmes and exciting events.

Where the funding goes:
Players of People's Postcode Lottery support our work with wildlife, wild landscapes and local communities across England, Wales and Scotland. Funding in Wales goes towards inspiring people about our marine wildlife , re-introduction of Beavers in mid-Wales and re-connecting people of Cardiff about wildlife. The funding also supports our vital work to protect special wild spaces, stand up for our seas and inspire people to take action for wildlife. 


 During the year, thanks to the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery, The Wildlife Trusts will inspire and connect people to nature through precious species and wild places, provide thousands of children of all ages with opportunities to spend time in nature through outdoor learning activities and will stand up for and defend wild places when they face significant threat.

Wildlife Trusts Wales has received valuable funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery which is distributed between the five local Wildlife Trusts in Wales. This enables them to continue delivering education opportunities and events for local communities and schools, as well as maintaining reserves and wildlife sites around the region, continuing our vital conservation work.
