This December get up close to stunning wetland wildlife at Castle Espie thanks to The National Lottery!
From 11 to 15 December 2017 WWT wetland centres, including Castle Espie are offering 2 for 1 admission to National Lottery players to say thanks for the over £10 million WWT has received from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) over the past 20 years.
Players just have to present a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard at a WWT Wetland Centre from 11 to 15 December to get 2 for 1 entry (with a full paying adult) to get close to fascinating animals, learn about amazing habitats, enjoy unique winter wildlife spectacles and lots more.
The support from National Lottery players has contributed hugely in enabling WWT to continue its charity work to conserve, restore and create wetlands, save wetland wildlife, and inspire everyone to value the amazing things healthy wetlands achieve for people and nature.
HLF funded projects have helped WWT Castle Espie build a new £3.1m visitor centre in 2006, create new wetland habitats and run community education projects.
The 2 for 1 admission offer from WWT Wetland Centres is part of a scheme where participating National Lottery funded visitor attractions across the UK are saying ‘thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.
Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said:
“December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7bn National Lottery funding since 1994. This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”
Sarah Clark, Centre Manager of WWT Castle Espie Wetland Centre said:
“Thanks to National Lottery players we’ve been able to build a new £3.1m visitor centre, undertake extensive habitat creation and invest in community education projects locally.
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming them to WWT Castle Espie and hope they’ll enjoy exploring our beautiful reserve and meeting our amazing wildlife up close.”
