People's Postcode Lottery
People's Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery in Great Britain where players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes while raising money for charities. The support that the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust has received from players of People’s Postcode Lottery has allowed us to carry out some invaluable work; enabling us to inspire the next generation of wildlife-lovers, take care of wonderful places for wildlife and support our many brilliant volunteers.

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have helped support the work of the Trust for many years. The funding MWT has received has been used to undertake woodland restoration and engage young people with nature through art. Now, the reserve volunteers and staff are being supported in their vital conservation work.
PPL funding has enabled MWT to purchase a 4x4 vehicle which can cope with the varied terrain found on the nature reserves. The Mitsubishi truck has ample space for transporting materials and equipment necessary to undertake maintenance work and habitat creation on our sites. In addition, the extra seating will enable us to be more inclusive in our volunteering opportunities as we will be able to offer transportation to volunteers who need it.
We have been unable to use the truck to its full potential during the Covid-19 pandemic but we are looking forward to being able to offer our full range of volunteer sessions and the new vehicle will enable us to deliver those sessions across the county with the help of as many volunteers as possible.
