I am asking community groups and local charities Delyn to think about what they could do with up to £20,000 this year.

Charities and community groups can apply to receive grants of between £500 and £20,000 raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Between 14 and 28 February 2018, charities are being urged to submit an expression of interest in the funding, which requires basic details about the organisation, as well as a very short description of the project they are proposing. Read more “CHARITY FUNDING OPPORTUNITY”

Today, I am announcing that I am to hold an information event, in conjunction with the National Lottery, for community groups and charities in Delyn to offer information on funding available to them from the National Lottery.

On the 28 October, from 12.30-14.30, the National Lottery will deliver a 45 minute presentation on their open grants with a few tips on improving applications. This will be followed by an opportunity for funding advice to be given to groups after the presentation until the event closes at 2.30pm. The event will be held at Flint Town Hall (CH6 5NW).

If community groups or charities are interested in attending they should email me at [email protected] with the subject line “National Lottery Funding Event”, or write to me at:

Houses of Parliament

Those wishing to attend this free event should respond no later than 5pm on 21 October 2016.

This is an excellent opportunity for our local community groups and charities to learn about the various different types of funding available from the National Lottery. Not only will you be able to learn about the funding available, but two representatives from the National Lottery will give tips and advice on how to improve your chances of securing funding.

Delyn has already benefited from a huge amount of National Lottery funding. Only recently Carmel Village Hall secured funding to help improve facilities. I hope as many of you as possible attend.

So if you run a charity in Delyn or a member of a local community group and you are looking for funding this is the event for you. It is important that you gain access to funding and support that you are entitled to.

I am urging environmental groups in Delyn that need funding to get off the ground to apply for a share of a £1.5 million funding pot.

Postcode Local Trust – a grant-giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery – has opened its latest funding round and the deadline for applications is Friday, 30 September at 5pm. Read more “Funding for local environmental groups”
