People's Postcode Lottery has today announced that it's raised over £6 Million for charity and community projects supported through its grant-giving charity People's Postcode Trust.

The charity has invested in over 900 projects across Great Britain to date. It offers awards of £500 up to £10,000 through its small grants programme and up to £100,000 for larger ‘dream’ projects. 

People's Postcode Trust has enlisted the support of X-factor finalist Danyl Johnson to mark the milestone. Danyl said, “I'm really excited to be People's Postcode Trust's charity ambassador. The Trust supports so many great causes in Great Britain, and it's only possible thanks to the players of People's Postcode Lottery – I'm really proud to be part of it.

Clara Govier, Head of Charities and Communications at People's Postcode Lottery said, “2012 has been a hard year for many charities as funding opportunities have been increasingly difficult to achieve. So we are absolutely delighted that we are finishing the year with such a wonderful announcement, and look forward to increasing our support to groups in need across 2013.

Launched in 2009, People's Postcode Trust receives 100% of its funding from players of People's Postcode Lottery. The Trust opens its small grants programme again on 7th January 2013. Visit for all the details, including full eligibility criteria and the application form.

As a charity lottery, 40p from every £2 ticket goes to support charities and good causes across England, Scotland and Wales, including People's Postcode Trust. Players have raised over £21.9 Million for good causes since launch.
