How players of People's Postcode Lottery support our work
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.
“touching with bare feet on the ground, smelling the smoke from the fire, seeing all the colours on small animals, tasting blackberries, hearing nature all around… feeling excitement and being a part of it!”
Three schools in Sheffield decided to take their learning outdoors, which is great for boosting children's confidence, concentration and happiness. These fantastic examples of outdoor learning are being showcased by the Sheffield Teach Wild Network – which is helping schools in the Sheffield area use great outdoor learning to give children the best possible start in life.
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. Some of the funding helps our Every Child Wild initiative, by giving children and young people amazing opportunities to connect with their local wildlife through Forest School, Nature Tots and Woodland Workshops or bushcraft sessions. These sessions take place in urban areas where children would otherwise have few opportunities to spend time in nature. 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. Find out more by clicking the menu options below.
