The Wildlife Trusts are very lucky to receive generous support from players of People's Postcode Lottery.

People's Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery in Great Britain where players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes whilst raising money for charities. A minimum of 30% from every £2 ticket goes directly to good causes like us.

In 2017 The Wildlife Trusts have been fortunate to receive £2.4million in funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery to support our work across England, Scotland and Wales.

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 a series of Forest School and outdoor learning activities and will stand up for and defend wild places when they face significant threat.

 

 

 

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust has received valuable funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery which will enable us to to give children the chance to access, explore and enjoy the outdoors. More importantly, we’re showing the children how they can use and enjoy the wonders of wildlife that exist within their urban boundaries. We are doing this through outdoor education sessions and after school clubs in schools in Coventry and Nuneaton plus Nature Tots for pre-schoolers at Brandon Marsh. We’ll even run a summer holiday programme for 11-17 year olds. Our project will reach up to 330 children in school clubs, 140 children in holiday clubs, 40 preschool children and 30 young people.
