MP Paul Masterton has urged charities and community groups to consider applying for a share of over £4 million of funding raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Both charities and community groups are eligible to apply for the grants of between £500 and £20,000.

With previously funded projects ranging from sports clubs, to wildlife conservation charities, this is a fantastic opportunity for groups to access funding to make a difference.

Mr Masterton said: “I know many charities and community groups do fantastic work on very limited budgets but securing extra funds can make a huge difference both for the charity and the local people it supports.

“I urge all local charities and groups to consider making an application to this funding raised by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery and to do so now. It is not difficult to make an application so I hope as many local groups as possible get involved.”
