Northumberland Wildlife Trust (NWT) is celebrating after a major funding milestone was reached thanks to players of the UK’s largest charity lottery.

Since 2008, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have supported the work of NWT and the cumulative total is now more than £1million.

Over the past nine years, the money has supported a range of projects at its reserves and other locations and with school pupils across the county.

It has also recently been able to install a new workshop and tool storage facility in the grounds of its St Nicholas Park site and carry out a small refurbishment of its head office.
