AN MP is encouraging good causes to apply for a share of a funding pot worth more than £3 million.

Stuart Andrew, who represents Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough, says people have until August 15 to apply for money from the People’s Postcode Lottery. Awards of between £500 and £20,000 are available to charities and community groups.

Mr Andrew said: “I know first-hand how many brilliant community projects there are in my constituency that could benefit from this chance to secure funding, get an initiative off the ground or expand the reach of their existing service. There is scope for a wide variety of organisations to benefit across the three trusts and I strongly encourage those of my constituents who are interested to visit the website and submit an application.”
