Good Cause in Erewash Receives Funding Boost to the Delight of Local MP

Local Maggie Throup, was thrilled to learn that a good cause in the constituency has received a welcome funding boost thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Derventio Housing Trust was recently awarded £2000 from Postcode Community Trust, a grant giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The funding will enable the organisation to continue its work in Erewash.

Congratulating the organisation,  Maggie said:

“I’m delighted to hear that Derventio Housing Trust has been successful in securing funds from Postcode Community Trust. My thanks must go to players of People’s Postcode Lottery as this award will make a real difference to the local community in Erewash.”

Since the beginning of the year, over £3.3milllion has been distributed to over 350 grassroots projects operating across Great Britain through People’s Postcode Lottery’s three community programmes trusts which are; Postcode Local Trust, Postcode Community Trust and People’s Postcode Trust.

The next opportunity for groups to apply for funding will be early in 2019. For more information, please visit the trusts’ websites:
