YDMT receives People’s Postcode Lottery boost

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) has received a £375,000 boost thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.



The support will enable the Clapham-based charity to continue expanding its work to support the people, landscape and wildlife of the Yorkshire Dales.

YDMT has now received £2,851,332 in funding thanks to players of the lottery since 2009, taking the partnership into its 12th year.

“We are really humbled by the support we receive from players of People’s Postcode Lottery,” YDMT Chief Executive David Sharrod said. “It has enabled us to continue long-running projects such as woodland planting and wildflower meadow restoration as well as invest more in delivering education and training, outreach and community grants.

“This incredible, ongoing and flexible support has transformed us a charity and continues to have a huge impact on what we can achieve. We’d like to thank players and all at People’s Postcode Lottery for making it happen.”

Will Humpington, Climate Change and Environmental Programmes Advisor at People’s Postcode Lottery, added: “We are really pleased that player support for Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is entering its 12th year. The flexible funding will allow them to continue their great work in the Dales, shaping the environment and creating breathing spaces for all, alongside supporting the communities of this unique place.

“Without players of People’s Postcode Lottery this funding simply wouldn’t be possible, so it is thanks to them.”

Thanks to players, YDMT has helped to plant more than 1.5 million trees since 1996 and given more than 13,000 adults and young people from disadvantaged urban backgrounds the chance to enjoy all kinds of activities and adventures in the Yorkshire Dales, often for the first time.
