Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is delighted to confirm that players of People’s Postcode Lottery have now raised an amazing £41,4572,783 for charities and good causes since the lottery’s launch in 2008. As a result of the money received from People’s Postcode Lottery the Trust has been able to invest money in its 95 nature reserves, which span the county improving conditions for wildlife.
Chief Executive of the Trust, Dr Rob Stoneman says: ‘Our unique partnership with the People’s Postcode Lottery means we get funding we can rely on, allowing us to plan for the future care for wild places which are under constant threat, and make Yorkshire’s countryside a better place – both for wildlife and people.’
‘Their support has helped us carry out work on the coast, allowing us to campaign for a North Sea teeming in wildlife. Whilst on land, it has helped with the conservation of our 95 nature reserves which span the county.’
The Trust has a large variety of sites across Yorkshire, all of which are perfect for visiting this spring, which benefit from the support received from People’s Postcode Lottery. These include Potteric Carr near Doncaster, Adel Dam near Leeds and coastal reserves such as the remarkable Spurn Point beyond Hull. The support also helps the Trust run its important environmental education work with families and schools, along with its exciting and varied events programme and wildlife campaigns.
The money not only benefits wildlife organisations like Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, but has also made a massive difference to hundreds of communities with funding awarded to numerous grass route groups and local projects as well as national and international charities.
