The People’s Postcode Lottery supported the Edinburgh International Book Festival last year with funding of £175,000. At their Gala Dinner held in Mansfield Traquair they announced additional funding of £25,000 would be paid to certain of their supported projects, and the Book Festival was among them.

Over £3 Million in additional funding for supported charities was also announced at the Gala. Dame Kelly Holmes joined 300 guests to celebrate the impact that players of People’s Postcode Lottery have on charities and good causes.
