Extra funding for canals from players of People’s Postcode Lottery



The Canal & River Trust is delighted to confirm that players of People’s Postcode Lottery have today (17 June 2014) awarded an extra £50,000 to its charitable work for 2014, bringing the total amount awarded to the Trust in 2014 to £225,000.



The Trust is one of 40 good causes to receive the extra funding with the support from players making a huge difference to hundreds of communities via numerous local groups as well as national and international charities.



Ruth Ruderham, head of fundraising at the Canal & River Trust, comments: “The extra award of funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery is wonderful news and comes on top of the announcement earlier this year that the Canal & River Trust had been named Charity of the Year by the charity lottery.



“The extra funding will help our work to improve the canals and make them very special places for people to use and enjoy, as well as havens for wildlife. We’re particularly looking at a project that will help further connect communities with their local canal – working with people to adopt and take particular pride for their local stretch of waterway.”



Just last month it was announced that players have awarded over £40 million to charities and good causes and in January, People’s Postcode Lottery and their sister lotteries in the Netherlands and Sweden were collectively announced as the second largest charitable private donor in the world. This news was announced by British business-focused newspaper City AM. In total over £4.9 billion has been awarded to good causes across the globe.

Id be interested in the stipulations.

 

Usually trust funds like to ensure that the money isn't absorbed on things like old salaries.
