Conservation In Communities
The Conservation Volunteers charity has received a funding boost from players
December 12th, 2017
The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) has received £400,000 in funding from players of People's Postcode Lottery. These funds will support the charity's volunteering programmes in community green spaces.
TCV is going to extend its reach to help transform even more of Great Britain's precious green spaces. The charity's work improves the natural environment while also enhancing health and sharing knowledge.
Established as a national charity in 1959, TCV is an expert in leading volunteers in conservation activities. The charity supports people in creating, protecting, and improving green spaces to benefit nature and the local community. TCV's conservation activities have always varied, but their inclusive approach has remained consistent. TCV brings people and places together to make healthier and happier communities for all.
Thanks to the fantastic support of players of People's Postcode Lottery, charities like TCV are now receiving funding. To date, over £255 Million has been awarded to good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
People's Postcode Lottery's Head of Charities, Clara Govier, said, "Our players tell us regularly that they sign up because People's Postcode Lottery is a fun way to support good causes, with a minimum of 31% of the ticket price going to charities. As People's Postcode Lottery continues to grow, this enables us to support even more good causes and we're delighted that TCV will now join us as a supported charity."
Darren York, TCV Chief Executive, said, "TCV is immensely grateful to players of People's Postcode Lottery for supporting our valuable work to connect people and green spaces in Great Britain. Our vision of healthier, happier communities for everyone is one that we believe in passionately and this support will help us to deliver more lasting outcomes for the environment, for communities, for health and wellbeing and for learning and skills."
