Young people visit the People’s Postcode Lottery HQ in Edinburgh

Avatar Greenhouse Sports

Four young people from our programmes joined Head Coach Jason and two supporting staff on a trip to check out People’s Postcode Lottery (PPL) HQ, located in historic Edinburgh.

Spending the day in PPL’s beautiful offices, the young people played table tennis in the glass atrium and even got the chance to play and coach PPL employees. At the end of the day, the young people held an ‘around the world’ game for everyone to join in.

People’s Postcode Lottery have supported Greenhouse Sports since 2015. They have donated an incredible £1.5million+ to Greenhouse since then, helping us support our mission in helping London’s young people access opportunities and life-changing coaching. They are our biggest funder to date.

The staff at PPL kindly scheduled a tour around Edinburgh Zoo for the young people before they headed back to London. They got to learn about animal conservation and even got to handle some snakes, insects and chameleons. None of the youngsters had ever been to Scotland before so it was an experience they won’t forget for a long time.

Thank you so much to the wonderful staff at People’s Postcode Lottery for hosting our visit. And of course, a huge thank you to players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, who support our young people.

The kids were sweethearts and we loved having them around. They’re a credit to the incredible work that Coach Jason and the team do.
