Coronavirus Update

Green start-ups from the Netherlands, Germany, Great Britain, Norway and Sweden, the countries with a Postcode Lottery, can once again secure a place in the final of the Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge.

Together, we’re all trying to get through this tough time as best as we can. The consequences of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the measures that need to be taken to combat it are being felt by everyone, everywhere. The situation is an unprecedented challenge to our flexibility, good spirit and social involvement. 

We feel deep sympathy for those affected by the virus. Our hearts go out to all those entrepreneurs and start-ups facing huge difficulties keeping their businesses - and the important work they do - afloat.

It goes without saying that Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge flexes and anticipates as developments unfold. Many of the Postcode Lottery’s beneficiaries are very active and a lot of positive initiatives have arisen in society. It’s heart-warming to see the forces at work that this crisis has unleashed.

For now, Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge 2020, will proceed as planned. We will be open for entries until 1 April. However, we are closely following developments concerning the coronavirus. If any changes to the competition or final event plans on 30 September need to be made, we will inform everyone involved accordingly.

Wishing you all the best and please, look after each other!
