People's Postcode Lottery

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have been supporting our projects since 2013, raising over £3 million to date. We want to say a massive thank you to all players for supporting our mission to look after special places for everyone, for ever.

Players support two vital areas of the National Trust's work:

Nature conservation

Helping to restore a healthy, beautiful and natural environment.

Heritage Open Days

England's largest festival of history and culture taking place every September, offering free access to over 5,700 events.

Continued support in 2020

In 2020, players of People's Postcode Lottery are supporting the National Trust with £450,000 towards our nature conservation work and £300,000 towards Heritage Open Days.

Players will provide much needed support of the British countryisde in the form of Riverlands, an exciting programme of work to see five of the UK's most precious rivers revived, alongside support for two more urgent nature conservation projects in Pembrokeshire and the Shropshire Hills.

2020 will be an important year for Heritage Open Days with players' support helping to open up more places to the public than ever before, all for free. Players support for Heritage Open Days in 2019 enabled more than 2 million people across the country to discover local cultural and historical treasures, many for the first time.

" We are thrilled that funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery to the National Trust will continue to support the charity’s nature programme and Heritage Open Days in 2020."
- Laura Chow, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery

Reimagining orchards at Brockhampton 

Blossoming orchards are being brought back to life at Brockhampton in Herefordshire. Two new orchards will be created and the original Victorian orchard will be reimagined to tell the story of how apple trees were brought to England from Russia and Kazakhstan. This project is thanks to funding from Postcode Earth Trust, raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, and funds from Arts Council England.
