Bill Wiggin MP has welcomed the news that a good cause in his constituency has received funding from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Play Learning Life have received £2,000 from the Postcode Local Trust for their Wild Workshops project. The project will “green the desert” of the new Colwall school grounds to help create habitats with children for learning, play and wildlife.

Congratulating the organisation, Mr Wiggin said:

“I’m delighted to hear that the Play Learning Life have received funding from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

“My thanks go to players of People’s Postcode Lottery, as this award will make a real difference to the local community.

“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.”

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.
