Players of People’s Postcode Lottery are supporting TCV for a second year, with £525,000 of funding!
Funding will support TCV and its volunteering programmes, where local people enhance their health and wellbeing and share new skills and knowledge, while connecting to their community and improving the natural environment.
On behalf of the entire TCV team, we would like to say a very big “thank you” to the players of People’s Postcode Lottery
Darren York TCV Chief Executive
Three new Green Gyms will be created to increase the health and wellbeing of volunteers, TCV’s Community Network membership will be offered for free to community groups in Great Britain, and the charity will invest in a number of important areas – including staff and volunteer training – to support its work to connect people and green spaces.
2019 is also TCV’s 60th birthday and funding will also help the charity to celebrate this milestone throughout the year, connecting with volunteers old and new.
TCV is grateful for the players of People's Postcode Lottery who help to award over £382 million to good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
Laura Chow, Head of Charities at People's Postcode Lottery, said, "We’re delighted that players of People’s Postcode Lottery will continue to support TCV’s work in communities across the country. People's Postcode Lottery continues to grow, and playing is a great way to support charities, with £382 million being raised for good causes to date. We look forward to seeing the impact of TCV’s funding during the charity’s 60th year.”
Darren York TCV Chief Executive said: “On behalf of the entire TCV team, we would like to say a very big “thank you” to the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Their ongoing support helps us to connect people and green spaces in Great Britain. In these challenging, changing and uncertain times, there has never been more need for our work, so this funding of over half a million pounds is vital to helping us to create happier, healthier communities for everyone.”
