I’d like to pass on information from the People’s Postcode Lottery, who have been in touch regarding three charitable trusts which are accepting applications for a share of £6 million of funds raised by those who have taken part in the game.
The first round is open until 10th February 2017; I would urge Crawley charities and community organisations to submit an 'expression of interest' form. Charities will then be shortlisted to complete a full application for funding.
In August, interested groups and organisations will be able to apply or re-apply. £3 million will be available in each of the two rounds. The maximum a project can receive is £20,000.
Information on the three trusts can be found at:
This funding will be allocated to a range of different initiatives. Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £168.4 million to date for over 2,800 good causes in the UK and around the world.
I hope that good causes across Crawley will apply for this funding.
