Philip 'delighted' as good cause in Shipley receives funding boost

Mr Philip Davies, MP for Shipley, 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.

Down Syndrome Training and Support Service Limited was recently awarded £10937 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 Shipley.

Congratulating the organisation, Mr Philip Davies said: “I’m delighted to hear that Down Syndrome Training and Support Service Limited 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 Shipley.”

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:
