Crawley MP welcomes funding boost for local good causes

Henry Smith MP has expressed his delight at the news that two local good causes have received a welcome funding boost thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Rivers Learning Project Community (LPC) and Barnardo’s were recently awarded £10,000 and £17,826 respectively from the lottery’s community programmes trusts, a series of three grant-giving charities funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The funding will enable the organisations to run fantastic projects in Crawley.

Henry said;

“I’m delighted to hear that Rivers LPC and Barnardo’s have been successful in securing funding.

“My thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery as these awards will make a real difference to the local community in Crawley.

“Indeed, earlier this month I visited Rivers LPC community volunteers in Bewbush to thank them for their work reaching out to isolated women across Crawley.”

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