People's Postcode Lottery

Over £5.9 million raised for wetlands

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £5.9 million in funding for WWT since 2015, awarded through the Postcode Planet Trust. This incredible support is essential in helping us protect wetlands, save wildlife and inspire people to take action for conservation.

About Postcode Planet Trust

Postcode Planet Trust has a mission to support the environment and the enjoyment of nature. The Trust supports charities and good causes with those purposes through grant funding. This support is enabled thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery who have raised over £1.2 billion for thousands of charities and good causes in Britain and beyond since 2005.

Protecting amazing wildlife

The wonderful support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery means we can help protect amazing wildlife like these two beautiful Bewick’s swans, which we’ve named Knockin’ and Ringin’ to celebrate funds raised by players.

Splashing great fun

With the support of players, we run exciting visitor events across our wetland centres, to help adults and children connect with and learn more about nature.

Wetland conservation action

Player support helps us conserve and restore wetlands in the UK and internationally, protecting natural resources that local communities and wildlife rely on, as well as advocating for wetland conservation action

Supporting our volunteers

Funds raised by players help support our volunteers and all that they achieve for wildlife and people, as well as their own health and wellbeing.

Engagement for all

Players support a range of educational activities across our centres, from pond dipping to wildlife talks to summer science!

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