Today, we are thrilled to congratulate and thank every player of the People’s Postcode Lottery as they celebrate the phenomenal achievement of raising £10million for UK charities.
To mark this important milestone, Mr and Miss Scotland joined the People’s Postcode Lottery and children from St Vincent’s primary school in East Kilbride to bounce into action in celebration.
For an average family household, £10million could cover your household expenses for 540 years, take you on 2,500 family holidays, or buy you 16million tins of beans. Just imagine the good UK charities can do with this massive sum of money.
For the Scottish Wildlife Trust, our share of this support, which to date totals a fantastic £1,343,787, means we can do far more to protect Scotland’s precious wildlife for the future. In fact, this sum is enough to ensure we can maintain our 123 wildlife reserves as havens for wildlife for the next two years.
With wildlife reserves spread across Scotland, we invite you to plan a visit to your local wildlife haven to see how the Scottish Wildlife Trust, thanks to the significant support of People’s Postcode Lottery players, is giving your local community a boost and protecting places where you can enjoy the beauty of Scotland’s natural environment.
As we lead ground-breaking conservation projects like the Scottish Beaver Trial, campaign for Scotland’s political leaders to take notice of nature, and work practically to maintain biodiversity on our wildlife reserves and in the wider community through the work of our dedicated conservation teams, we must credit and thank the players of People’s Postcode Lottery for their significant part in making it all possible.
