SEK7 million from the Swedish Postcode lottery!
9 March 2017
Peace Parks Foundation Sweden is the grateful recipient of SEK7 million from the Swedish Postcode Lottery. On 6 March 2017, the Swedish Postcode Lottery distributed over SEK1 billion to 53 non-profit organisations. Since its inception in 2005, the Swedish Postcode Lottery has generated more than SEK8.3 billion for charities.
Ms Cecilia Bergendahl, managing director of Novamedia Sweden and lottery manager at the Swedish Postcode Association said: 'Right now we are seeing a worrying development in two areas: One is the climate and the environment, and the second is the growing inequality in our society. We have therefore chosen to focus on these areas'.
Peace Parks Foundation thanks the Swedish Postcode Lottery and the many ticket buyers for their tremendous and continued support, which has made a major contribution to transfrontier conservation development in southern Africa, as well as to improved livelihoods in Simalaha Community Conservancy and the implementation of the Rhino Protection Programme.
