West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has welcomed the news that a good cause in her constituency has received funding from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.
AppleCast Limited have received £19,997 from the Postcode Local Trust for their Outdoor Community Classroom. Funding will help to create an outdoor classroom where people learn about the natural environment and come together for community activities.
Congratulating the organisation, MP Rosie Cooper said:
“I’m delighted to hear that AppleCast Limited have received funding from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery. I met with Neil a few months ago to learn about the work of Apple Cast and the plans they have to develop and expand their offering and education to those disadvantaged or not otherwise in education, employment or training.
“This award will make a real difference to the local community. I would encourage the local community to make use of the facilities, including the lovely café open to the public.
“I also encourage any other local groups and charities needing additional project funding to consider applying to the Postcode Community Trust, the Postcode Local Trust or the People’s Postcode Trust when the next funding round opens. This type of funding can help you achieve more for your charity and the local community.”
Commenting Malcolm Fleming, Head of Public Affairs for People’s Postcode Lottery said:
“We are delighted that our players are helping to fund thousands of local charities and community groups across the country, including those in West Lancashire. People’s Postcode Lottery was established to raise funds for good causes. Supporting the excellent work of local organisations can help them make a huge difference to the causes and communities they serve.”
To date, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £393 million for over 5,500 good causes across Great Britain.
Local charities and community groups can apply for funding from the Postcode Community Trust, the Postcode Local Trust and the People’s Postcode Trust. The next funding round opens on 31st July. For more information, please visit the trusts’ websites:
