The National Trust looks after special places, forever, for everyone.
The National Trust cares for special places so people and nature can thrive. They protect and provide access to reflective, inspiring places that build memories, create passions, and motivate future generations to care for the world around them. Each year, millions of people connect with the powerful histories revealed in National Trust places - helping people to build new stories of their own.
Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have been supporting the National Trust since 2013. Hilary McGrady, Director General of the National Trust says “Every single day, players are helping to protect nature, beauty, and history and for that, I’d like just to say a massive thank you. Thanks to you, this year, our Blossom campaign will inspire more people with the beauty of springtime; we’ll be protecting some of the most remarkable coastline in England at Exmoor and we’re helping local communities to share their stories through the incredibly popular Heritage Open Days. I am delighted that players of People’s Postcode Lottery are helping us to achieve so much.”
Thanks to continued support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery, Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture. Every September, thousands of local people organise free events to celebrate special places, giving audiences a chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences.
Blossom Together brings springs message of hope to millions. Working in close partnership with communities across the UK, the National Trust will create an annual Festival of Blossom giving everyone the opportunity to connect with nature, each other and feel uplifted by the beauty of spring, wherever they are.
In 2023/24 players of People’s Postcode Lottery are supporting Reconnecting Exmoor Coast. This landscape-scale nature and carbon project will connect people with one of the most diverse landscapes in Britain. From deep wooded valleys of temperate rainforest to high sea cliffs, from wildflower meadows to moorland. With players’ support, the Trust will create a powerful new frontline in the battle to combat climate change.
