People’s Postcode Trust supports disability sport

Greenbank was awarded £4562 by People’s Postcode Trust, a grant-giving charity, funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

We have used the money to purchase disability sports equipment to be used on an on-going basis at sessions that take place at Greenbank Sports Academy, particularly for use in blind and visually impaired (VI) football sessions.

Blind Footballer Roy Turnham said ‘it is fantastic to have the support of People’s Postcode Lottery so that we can buy specialist items of equipment like a football that contains a bell, so that blind players can detect the direction of the ball. Greenbank Sports Academy offers lots of opportunities for disabled adults and children to take part in sport ‘

People’s Postcode Lottery is Britain’s charity lottery. Players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes while raising money for good causes.  As a charity lottery, £2 from every monthly lottery ticket charities and community initiatives across England, Scotland and Wales, including People’s Postcode Trust.  People’s Postcode Lottery believes in supporting local communities so the money raised by players in each country, stays in that country.
