People’s Postcode Lottery funding

Environmental groups in Inverclyde with exciting projects that need funding to get off the ground are being urged to apply for a share of a £1.5 million funding pot.  The kind of projects that are likely to be funded will improve local ecology and habitats, encourage bio-diversity and benefit the wider environment. Groups can apply for funding ranging from £500 – £20,000.

Postcode Local Trust – a grant-giving charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery – has opened its latest funding round and the deadline for applications is Friday, 30 September at 5pm.

Applying for this fund could just be the catalyst for getting your project off the ground.

This is an exciting prospect for any local environmental groups that are in need of an extra funding boost and I’d urge them to get their applications in before the deadline.

Postcode Local Trust will open for applications from now until 5pm on 30 September, 2016.

As a charity lottery, a minimum of 30% goes directly to good causes. Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised £142 million to date for over 2000 charities across Great Britain and internationally.
