By playing People’s Postcode Lottery, you are supporting great charities like the National Galleries of Scotland
The National Galleries recently received a cheque for £78,144. Our players have raised over £159,364 for the National Galleries since they joined us as a charity partner in December 2010.
This money is bringing Scotland’s great art collection to a
wider audience by helping to:
Transform the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. This is due to open to the public again this summer.
Create free displays and exhibitions. Thousands of visitors can look forward to seeing something new each time they visit.
Give families and communities across Scotland the chance to engage with and enjoy art through education programmes and learning events
John Leighton, the Director General of the National Galleries asked us to pass on this message of thanks: “Our partnership with People’s Postcode Lottery has made a tremendous difference to the National Galleries of Scotland. It helps us to bring exciting exhibitions to Scotland.
“ For example, in this year of Royal celebration, we will show a special Jubilee exhibition of portraits of Her Majesty the Queen across the sixty years of her reign. We hope that many People’s Postcode Lottery players will come and see the show and our thanks to all of them for their brilliant support.”
