Free entry to SWT's Visitor Centres this weekend is set to encourage locals to spend time outdoors spotting some of Scotland’s most iconic creatures.
To celebrate St. Andrew’s Day, the Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT) has teamed up with the People’s Postcode Lottery to offer free entry to any of its three wildlife visitor centres, located across the country, from Saturday 28 to Monday 30 November.
Claire Stewart, Charities Manager from People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “Simply present a copy of the Postcode News, People’s Postcode Lottery’s own newspaper, or download the voucher from www.postcodelottery.com
to enjoy local Scottish wildlife for free weekend.
“The People’s Postcode Lottery is proud to support the Scottish Wildlife Trust. We are delighted to work with the Trust as one of our charity partners and SWT will open their visitor centres for free on St. Andrew’s Day, bringing wildlife experiences to more people from postcodes across Scotland.”
SWT is one of five official charities of the People’s Postcode Lottery, Scotland’s own charity lottery, which divides cash prizes between players in postcode areas while helping worthy causes in Scotland. 40p from each ticket sold goes direct to charities in Scotland. The lottery has raised over £772,000 for the Scottish Wildlife Trust so far.
SWT is the largest voluntary body working for all the wildlife or Scotland. For more information on SWT or to become a member, visit www.swt.org.uk
