Protecting nature reserves
Support from players of People's Postcode Lottery means we can create and maintain habitats on our nature reserves, like woodland management at Briarwood Banks, with our team of dedicated volunteers.
Our Patron, Conrad Dickinson, carried the People's Postcode Lottery flag to the South Pole on his recent expedition - an amazing achievement, and a great opportunity to show our appreciation to players for supporting our wildlife charity.
Thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery, our Gardening Group can keep our St Nicholas Park reserve clear of litter, free of graffiti and look after the wildlife garden and ponds for visitors to enjoy.
People’s Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery raising funds for, and increasing awareness of, charities and good causes like Northumberland Wildlife Trust - players have raised £669,940 for us to date!
Support for our charity
For every £2 you spend with People’s Postcode Lottery, 50p goes directly to good causes like us.
Thanks to the support of Postcode Green Trust – funded entirely by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery – Northumberland Wildlife Trust is doing more than ever before. We are able to deliver education opportunities and events for local communities and schools, as well as maintaining reserves and wildlife sites around the region and continuing our vital conservation work. It’s not just the funding we benefit from either. The continuing support of Postcode Green Trust is also increasing awareness of our work, helping us to reach new supporters.
The scale of charity funding from People's Postcode Lottery is breathtaking!
"The scale of charity funding from People's Postcode Lottery is breathtaking - it's an incredible feat for them to become the third biggest charity supporter now in the world, giving over £47.2 Million in total to charities to date. For charities like Northumberland Wildlife Trust, players of PPL make a huge difference to our work.
"Funding helps us to safeguard important species like red squirrels, otters and water voles, but also enables people of all ages to join in our fantastic events, and visit our nature reserves around the region where they can experience wildlife first-hand.
"As one of the first recipients of its charity funding, NWT is proud to be partnered with PPL, and in these economically challenging times, their support gives all charities hope and added strength."
Mike Pratt, CEO, Northumberland Wildlife Trust
