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.
“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.
