I am encouraging local charities and good causes to apply for over £3million of funding that has been raised by the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Applications are open from 6 February until 20 February, where a whole host of good causes from social enterprise to voluntary groups and registered charities are eligible to apply for grants between £500 and £20,000.

The financial support is available through three different trusts that are all funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery with the sole purpose of supporting people and their communities across Great Britain. Each trust supports projects focussed on specific themes: Read more “Charity Funding Available”

I am thrilled to learn that a good cause in the constituency has received a welcome funding boost thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Home-Start Flintshire was recently awarded £9354 from Postcode Trust, a grant giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The funding will enable the organisation to continue its work in Delyn.

Since the beginning of the year, over £3.3milllion has been distributed to over 350 grassroots projects operating across Great Britain through People’s Postcode Lottery’s three community programmes trusts which are; Postcode Local Trust, Postcode Community Trust and People’s Postcode Trust.

The next opportunity for groups to apply for funding will be early in 2019. For more information, please visit the trusts’ websites:

I’m delighted to hear that Home-Start Flintshire has been successful in securing funds from Postcode Trust. My thanks must go to players of People’s Postcode Lottery as this award will make a real difference to the local community in Flintshire.
