MP highlights funding available for Mansfield charities

Posted onPosted on 16th Apr

Ben Bradley MP has urged local charities and good causes to apply for funding raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

More than 3,500 grassroots organisations in Britain will receive a share of almost £17m this year.

Local projects can apply for funding from the Postcode Places Trust, which is for organisations operating in the east of England. 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.

As a commitment to supporting smaller good causes, applications will only be accepted from organisations with an annual income of less than £1m. 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.postcodeplacestrust.org.uk

Commenting, Ben Bradley MP said: “Over the last year many charities in Mansfield 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.

“It’s fantastic that People’s Postcode Lottery players have raised over £700 million for good causes for good causes and I really hope we see some more successful applicants from our area. I’d urge all local charities and community groups across Mansfield and Warsop to consider submitting an application.”
