Tonia Antoniazzi, MP for Gower, has urged 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 Community Trust which is for organisations operating in Wales. 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.
Tonia Antoniazzi MP said: “Over the last year many local charities have responded to the pandemic by working to support and protect our communities. Yet the last year has also been a difficult time for charity fundraising.
“The funds raised by People’s Postcode Lottery players and available to local charities are therefore a great chance for local organisations to secure funding.
“Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have already raised over £700 million for good causes and I would love to see some more successful applicants from this area so I urge all local charities and community groups to consider submitting an application.”
People’s Postcode Lottery’s head of public affairs, Malcolm Fleming said: “People’s Postcode Lottery players are making a massive difference to charities across the country and we are delighted that this year the funding available for local charities should more than double.
“We urge all interested organisations to visit the trust website to find out more about the funding available and how to submit an application.”
As a commitment to supporting smaller good causes, applications will only be accepted from organisations with an annual income of less than £1 million. Preference will be given to those with an income less than £500,000.
More information, including a funding guide and eligibility quiz, can be found on the trust’s website. www.postcodecommunitytrust.org.uk
