August 26: Charity lottery players just the ticket for Yorkshire Dales

From: David Sharrod, Director, Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, Old Post Office, Main Street, Clapham.

THE people, landscape and environment of the Yorkshire Dales are set to benefit from a £50,000 boost thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The charity lottery launched in January 2008 and now 55p from every £2 ticket goes directly to good causes such as local charity Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.

Over the last six and a half years, the Trust has been fortunate enough to receive £651,332 from the charity 

This incredible sum of money plays a vital role in enabling us to continue working with partners to deliver a wide range of inspiring projects that help to care for all aspects of life in the Yorkshire Dales.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to all players of the People’s Postcode Lottery for their ongoing support.

The Flowers of the Dales Festival is another initiative that has been made possible thanks to this support.

Currently in full swing, the festival focuses on wildflowers and on the unique natural environment of the Dales.

I would certainly encourage readers to take a look at the programme which can be found at
