People's Postcode Lottery

WWT has been supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery since 2014.

Over £3.8 million has been raised by players of People's Postcode Lottery since our partnership started and this incredible support is essential in helping us protect wetlands, save wildlife and inspire people to take action for conservation.

About People’s Postcode Lottery

People’s Postcode Lottery manages lotteries on behalf of 20 Postcode Trusts. People play with their chosen postcodes for a chance to win cash prizes. A minimum of 33% from each subscription goes directly to charities and good causes in Britain and internationally.

Players have now raised more than £900 million for charities and good causes in Britain and beyond since 2005.

Engagement for all

Players are supporting our range of educational activities across our centres, from pond dipping to wildlife talks to summer science! When schools closed in March 2020, thanks to the support of players, we were also able to provide home-schooling support for parents. Our curriculum-based learning hub included quizzes, videos, interactive activities and work sheets, was viewed 67,000 in the first lockdown.

Caring for our animals

Players support our aviculturists and vets, who monitor and care for our animals year-round, as well as helping fund animal home improvements! Our playful family of otters had their home transformed and expanded at our Wetland Centre in Martin Mere, thanks to the generosity of players.

Splashing Great Fun

With the support of players, we run annual events such as our Puddle Jumping Competition and our Easter Duck Trail, to help adults and children connect with and learn more about nature.

Players funding has also helped create engaging and educational facilities such as our pond dipping zone at WWT Martin Mere and our explore play area at WWT Llanelli.

Thank you to players of People’s Postcode Lottery for their continued support that helps us to protect wetlands for wildlife and people.
