People’s Postcode Lottery has appointed Citypress to develop a UK-wide PR campaign. The appointment comes on the back of a period of substantial growth for the Edinburgh-based lottery operator.
Latest figures show the players of People’s Postcode Lottery have already raised £361 million for more than 4,000 organisations.
Last year alone it raised £93m for charity, £8.2m of which was awarded to grass roots groups, benefitting more than 900 local projects across Scotland, England and Wales.
Beth Nicol, director at Citypress and head of Scotland, said: “People’s Postcode Lottery has big ambitions with an incredibly talented and motivated team behind it.
“It’s a great brand that has a hugely positive impact on communities and society, so naturally the team at Citypress are looking forward to being part of its growth.”
