Hip hip hurrah! People’s Postcode Lottery has just celebrated ten fantastic years of players raising funds for charities and good causes like YDMT!
Players have now raised more than £80 million, supporting over 1,500 national and local grassroots projects. In fact over 95% of postcodes across Britain have a benefitting charity in their region.
The charity lottery is based around players’ postcodes, allowing entire communities to win together whilst raising money for worthy causes, with 27.5% awarded to charities and good causes from every £2 ticket.
Here at YDMT we are very fortunate to have received support from the charity lottery over the last six and a half years. Thanks to a recent £50,000 boost, our total amount received now stands at £651,332 – thank you!
This incredible sum of money plays a vital role in enabling us to continue working with partners to deliver a wide range of inspiring projects that help to care for all aspects of life in the Yorkshire Dales, from habitat conservation to education and outreach, and rural apprenticeship schemes for young local people.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to all players of People’s Postcode Lottery for their ongoing support.
