My thanks to the People’s Postcode Lottery who recently contacted me to advise of three ways local community groups and charities can win a grant of up to £20,000 this year.
With a deadline of 28th February 2018, all groups have to do for now is provide an expression of interest in funding, which consists of outlining details about their organisation and information on their proposed project.
I’m not alone in often being struck by the amazing work of Crawley’s charities and community groups which serve local residents, and have no doubt that for many this additional funding would be most welcome.
There are three charitable trusts which are offering this funding support. The People’s Postcode Trust is open for initiatives to tackle poverty and support human rights; the Postcode Local Trust focuses on community gardens, wildlife and green energy projects; while the Postcode Community Trust looks at grassroots sport and recreation activities.
Last year these three trusts provided more than £8.2 million of funding support. Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £263 million to date for over 4,000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
It would be great to see projects in Crawley receive a share of this support – good luck!
