Meet the Funder: People’s Postcode Lottery
December 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
FREE VIRTUAL FUNDING WORKSHOP FOR LOCAL CHARITIES IN CEREDIGION
Ben Lake, MP for Ceredigion, will take part in a virtual funding workshop with People’s Postcode Lottery for local charities, volunteer organisations, and community groups in Ceredigion. The session will give good causes in Mr Lake’s constituency advice on how they can apply for funds to make a difference in their community.
The live Zoom event takes place on 9th of December at 10am.
More than £10.6 million, raised thanks to People’s Postcode Lottery players, funded thousands of community groups and good causes in postcodes across Britain last year. Thanks to charity lottery regulation changes, and increasing support from players, over 3,500 grassroots organisations will receive a share of an almost £17 million funding pot in 2021.
Over £197,000, raised by People’s Postcode Lottery players, has already made a difference to many small, local good causes in Ceredigion.
Ben Lake MP said: ““Communities are the heart of our nation and they wouldn’t be the same without local charities and the work they do to support people and help places thrive. Causes throughout Ceredigion have already benefitted from funds raised by People’s Postcode Lottery players and this funding is being put to good use. I’d encourage as many of our fantastic community organisations as possible to join this workshop and find out more about the funding available to them.”
Head of charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, Laura Chow added: “The money raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery is making a huge difference in communities across the country.
“We want to do all we can to help local charities and good causes successfully apply – particularly at a time when many are losing out on essential funds. Our free virtual workshop is a useful opportunity for smaller, local charities and groups to find out about the funding available, get pointers on applying and ask us any questions.”
More than £800 million has been raised for thousands of charities and good causes, thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
