The charity making life better by water

People's Postcode Lottery

Our partnership with People’s Postcode Lottery, which began in 2012, has supported us to look after and bring to life 2,000 miles of canals and rivers, because we believe that life is better by water.

With over £18 million in funding awarded to date, players of the People's Postcode Lottery have supported a variety of important waterway and wellbeing projects.

This ranges from work on the Cathedral of the Canals, the Anderton Boat Lift, through to our Let's! participation programmes, and also includes our national community outreach programme, Community Roots.

Richard Parry, our chief executive, said: "We are extremely grateful for the ongoing support of People's Postcode Lottery which has enabled us to fund a range of vital projects, helping to realise our vision of living waterways that transform places and enrich lives."

Thank you to players of People's Postcode Lottery for supporting us today and throughout the year. Future funding is intended to be awarded by Postcode Earth Trust, a promoting society of People's Postcode Lottery.
