Good causes in St Austell and Newquay receive funding boost to the delight of local MP

Steve Double, Member of Parliament for St Austell and Newquay, was thrilled to learn that two good causes in Mid-Cornwall have received a welcome funding boost thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Sensory Trust and Cultivate Cornwall were recently awarded £17,062 and £2,000 respectively from the lottery’s community programmes trusts, a series of three grant giving charities funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The funding will enable the organisations to run fantastic projects for the benefit of the community in Mid-Cornwall.

Commenting on the funding, Steve said:

“I’m delighted to hear that a number of charitable organisations in my constituency have been successful in securing funds. My thanks must go to players of People’s Postcode Lottery as these awards will make a real difference to the local community in St Austell and Newquay.”

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:
