Our players' support helps...

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) to support every aspect of life in the Yorkshire Dales.

YDMT is a small charity doing big things to protect and enhance the environmental, social and economic well-being of the Yorkshire Dales. To date the Trust has helped to deliver over 1,200 projects worth around £25 Million in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding areas.

Players support has helped to:

  • Restore 300 hectares of wildflower hay meadows, home to hundreds of species of wildlife.

  • Bring more than 4,000 people from disadvantaged urban backgrounds to the Yorkshire Dales, often for the first time, to enjoy all kinds of activities and adventures in the beautiful countryside. These day visits often provide the confidence and inspiration for individuals to return to the Dales with friends and family.

  • Provide training opportunities for young local people to learn countryside management skills.

  • Conserve the unique heritage features that make the Yorkshire Dales landscape special – like rebuilding walls and restoring village halls.

  • Plant over 1 Million native broadleaf trees to re-establish hundreds of beautiful woodlands. Over time these trees will go on to create vibrant wildlife habitats, enriching the landscape and bringing huge environmental benefits to the area.

  • Provide financial support and expert advice to hundreds of life-changing community projects and initiatives. 

  • Encourage more than 12,000 people to appreciate and respect the wildflowers of the Dales through an annual festival of events for the whole family.

YMDT is a "doing" organisation but we wouldn't be able to do any of these wonderful things without the support of our partners and the kindness of countless individuals, including People's Postcode Lottery players. Thank you.
