Lottery Grants

Antoinette Sandbach, MP for Eddisbury, is encouraging local charities and community groups to apply for funding from a pot raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Applications are open until August 14. A wide range of community organisations, from registered charities, to voluntary groups and social enterprises, are eligible to apply for grants of between £500 and £20,000.

The funding can be accessed through three different trusts, each trust supporting projects focussed on different themes.

The People’s Postcode Trust wants applications from projects aimed at promoting human rights, the Postcode Community Trust supports initiatives working to improve the health and wellbeing of communities and the Postcode Local Trust provides funding that’s dedicated to improving outdoor space.

Antoinette Sandbach MP said: “There are countless organisations doing fantastic work across Eddisbury.

"This is the perfect opportunity for them to take advantage of the funding available and expand the reach of an existing service, get a new project off the ground, or allow it to help extend an already successful initiative."
