I am often asked for advice about fundraising by local good causes and charities. I’m afraid that I have not been much use to them: it’s an area where I only have my own limited personal experience and certainly no expertise.
Recently however, I’ve been badgering the government to raise the sales cap on lotteries for hospices and similar good causes. My involvement with this has led to several contacts with the People’s Postcode Lottery which has been quite helpful with my campaign.
Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £1 billion for good causes.
The trust funded by PPL offers funding of up to £25,000 and can be for a specific project, or just general core costs.
They have now agreed to run a ‘virtual funding workshop’ for charities and good causes based in my parliamentary constituency of New Forest West and I’m delighted to partner with PPL to help voluntary organisations receive funding for all the brilliant work that they do.
This workshop will offer the opportunity to hear from the People’s Postcode Lottery team about the funding that is on offer to good causes. The workshop will also include a question-and-answer session where you can ask PPL’s charity experts any questions you may have about the funding on offer, or about anything else.
The workshop will take place at 2PM on Thursday 14 September over Zoom. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org , they will provide further details including the Zoom link.
Please feel free to share this invite with any voluntary organisations based in New Forest West you think might be interested and I look forward to seeing them at the ‘workshop’
