Open to organisations operating in the North of England, Scotland & Wales, Trustees were hugely mpressed with high standard of applications - meaning comeptition for awards was intense.

The funding will work to support a total of 115 projects across the North of England, Scotland and Wales.

People’s Postcode Lottery Head of Charities Clara Govier said "We are delighted that Postcode Community Trust has been able to award this milestone amount of £1 million in only their first funding round, thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery. Through the Community Grants programme, players are supporting local, community causes with a real and lasting impact".

The next round of funding will open on 1st July 2015, and is open to those organisations working in the East and West Midlands, as well as Scotland and Wales.
