People's Postcode Lottery

Support from the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery is continuing to help MCS work towards its vision of Seas Full of Life: seas and coasts where nature flourishes and people thrive.

How People’s Postcode Lottery supports MCS

MCS is among hundreds of charities sharing in £93.3 million pounds raised last year by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. In 2017, MCS received an amazing £600,000 of this total, which will support our vital work this year. In particular, it will help us clean up more beaches, protect and recover our ocean wildlife, and promote sustainable seafood to an even wider audience.

Kate Hamble

Kate Humble, TV adventurer and presenter, says: “The thing that concerns me most is that so many people simply refuse to accept that the sea is not a bottomless resource of fish, that things can be dumped in it and will somehow magically disappear, that it can continue to be exploited the way it is now, with no ill-effects. This absolutely has to change”

Helping us reach further

With support from the funding we have allocated so far, we have been able to get many thousands more volunteers out on local beaches cleaning up rubbish and finding out where the material comes from so that it can be stopped at source. Furthermore, thanks to the support from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, our sustainable seafood advice will be seen right across the country, with new guides and mobile phone apps designed for shoppers to take to the supermarket or fish and chip shop, giving them the power to choose the most sustainable seafood.
