Andrew Gwynne MP has thanked National Lottery players in Denton & Reddish for their role in raising over £30 million every week for good causes.
The Denton & Reddish MP also urged more local arts, sports, heritage and community groups to apply for National Lottery funding. Since the National Lottery started in 1994, £6.5m funding has been given to 294 projects in the constituency.
While funding has already made a massive difference in the area, there is still more money available that could be just the ticket for local sports, arts, community and heritage groups.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“National Lottery players have already helped countless local groups, but so many more could still benefit from funding. For example, it can be used to buy equipment, modernise a facility, train volunteers, make a film or organise an event.
“I’d strongly urge everyone involved in something like this to consider applying for National Lottery funding.”
