Communities matter


There's more to People's Postcode Lottery than meets the eye... Our amazing players have helped raise over £800 Million for over 9,000 charities and good causes and through our partnership with Emmerdale, we want to share some of these wonderful stories. From causes helping adults, children and animals to the environment and so much more, there’s a charity that touches the heart of every community.

Stay tuned as we share even more projects supported by our players!



Across England & Wales, “Goldies” run singing and activity sessions for older people who are socially isolated as well as people who have learning difficulties or dementia. For many who take part in the services provided, the charity is their lifeline. In 2019, funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery has provided social ‘Sing&Smile’ groups, award-winning intergenerational activities & community building events for older isolated people.

The Ramblers

The Ramblers helps everyone, everywhere, to enjoy walking as well as protecting the places we all love to walk. This film was made in September 2019 on The Cambrian Way trail, a 298 mile route stretching the length of Wales. The project that saw dedicated volunteers make sure the trail was clearly marked for all to enjoy was supported directly by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, who have raised over £8.2 Million for The Ramblers since 2016. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Ramblers volunteering activities and group walks have been suspended until further notice.
