MSP promotes new lottery funds for good causes in Strathkelvin and Bearsden

MSP Rona Mackay is encouraging charities and community groups to make use of new lottery funds that will soon be made available.

In February, they have the opportunity to apply for between £500 and £20,000 raised by the People’s Postcode Lottery.

The next funding rounds for the People’s Postcode Trust, Postcode Local Trust and Postcode Community Trust will open for application on February 14.

The funding round closes to applications on February 28.

Rona Mackay, MSP for Strathkelvin and Bearsden, said: “I have had the privilege of visiting many amazing charities and community groups across Strathkelvin and Bearsden, and I know many need and deserve extra funding.

“The People’s Postcode Lottery fund is an excellent way for these stand out citizens in the constituency to boost the finances of their organisations, especially if they’re working on a particular project.

“The application period is only two weeks long so I recommend interested groups show great urgency and get their applications in on time.

“I’d like to thank the People’s Postcode Lottery for making available these funds that will inevitably lead to the betterment of the many good causes operating from East Dunbartonshire.”


The different funds:

People’s Postcode Trust seeks applications for projects that focus on the prevention of poverty, promotion of human rights and equal rights.

Postcode Local Trust supports community gardens, play areas, wildlife and green energy

Postcode Community Trust focuses on grass-roots sports, arts, recreation and healthy living


Rona Mackay was elected in May 2016 with a 8,100 majority in Strathkelvin and Bearsden.
