Twycross Zoo has won a People’s Postcode Lottery Grant!

Pupils from six local primary schools are taking part in special after-school clubs at Twycross Zoo, thanks to kind support from the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Eight year olds have been given the opportunity to come and learn about the natural world with their classmates. In the Eco Rangers Club, they get to learn about the natural world around them through special visits to the Zoo. These interactive and fun sessions also teach children how to protect nature in their own community in practical ways- by making bat boxes, insect hotels and much more!

Thank you very much to the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery for your support for the Eco-Rangers club.

Opening Times: 10am - 6pm
