Working locally across the country
National ambassador for The Wildlife Trusts' Forest School projects, TV naturalist and Wildlife Trusts vice-president Nick Baker, declared “the enthusiasm, sense of momentum, and community spirit has been overwhelming” when he visited our work at Moston Fairway nature reserve in 2015.
The Wildlife Trusts are very lucky to receive generous support from players of 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 whilst raising money for charities.

The Wildlife Trusts have been receiving generous support from players of People's Postcode Lottery since 2014, when we were given £300,000 to help our work. In 2015, the Wildlife Trusts recieved £525,000, which was again increased to £2.4m in both 2016 and 2017. The support each year has massively helped us in our work across England, Scotland and Wales.
In 2018, The Wildlife Trust continued to recieve support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery with an amazingly generous £2.8m towards our work. Thanks to this support, The Wildlife Trusts are inspiring and connecting people to nature through precious species and wild places, providing thousands of children of all ages with opportunities to spend time in nature through a series of Forest School and outdoor learning activities and standing up for and defended wild places when they faced significant threat.
In 2019 we will be extending our project aims to bring Nature Tots and Forest School taster sessions to both cities so watch this space.
“This is what it’s all about, opening up our natural world to young enthusiasm and inspiring kids to love learning and being outdoors.”TV naturalist and Wildlife Trusts vice-president
