Nus Ghani, MP for Wealden, is calling on local charities and good causes to apply for funding raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
Over 3,500 grassroots organisations in Britain will receive a share of almost £17 million this year. Local projects can apply for funding from the Postcode Society Trust which is for organisations operating in the south of England. Registered charities can apply for up to £20,000 of funding, which is available for both project-based and core costs.
Applications will be accepted every month until October 2021.
Nus Ghani said: “Many Wealden charities have played a key role in supporting and protecting our communities throughout the pandemic, but the past year has been incredibly challenging for charity fundraising. I have successfully campaigned to secure Government funding for Wealden organisations, but further support is needed. The funds raised by People’s Postcode Lottery players are a great chance for local charities and community groups to secure funding and I encourage eligible organisations in Wealden to submit an application.”
