Support so far

More than £18.9 million has been raised by players of People's Postcode Lottery since our partnership started. This funding has planted millions of trees and so much more:

Trees woods and wildlife

Awesome Arkaig

Players are supporting the restoration of Loch Arkaig Pine Forest, home to ospreys, eagles and more. They have also funded the Arkaig osprey cam, giving an insight into the secret lives of these majestic birds.

Connecting communities

Players’ support for Free Tree Packs helped schools and communities to plant more than 1 million trees across the UK in 2021. They also supported our wider planting call to tackle the climate and nature crises via Big Climate Fightback; and we’re encouraging citizen scientists to get involved with tracking the impacts of climate change on nature via Nature's Calendar.

Moving mountains

In 2019, players' funding helped the Woodland Trust purchase its very first mountain: Ben Shieldaig, in the Scottish Highlands. Some 500 acres of precious ancient woodland and a host of rare wildlife is now in our care.

Land for Woods Fund

Continued support allowed us to set up a Land for Woods Fund in 2021 - specifically to let us respond quickly when suitable land for woodland conservation and creation comes to market. So far, it’s helped secure Couldoran Estate, neighbouring Ben Shieldaig, Green Farm in Norfolk and an extension at Glen Finglas Estate, our largest site in the UK.

Thank you to players of People's Postcode Lottery for their ongoing support of our work.
