A Smashing News for Hereward College with a Funding Boost from Charity Lottery




The students at Hereward College and wider community are celebrating with a funding boost thanks to players of a charity lottery.

Hereward College was awarded £5,654 by People’s Postcode Trust, a grant-giving charity, funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The money has been used to install new outdoor tennis nets and posts, and to buy indoor short tennis nets and rackets for the College to support both students and the local community to play more sport. This is part of an on-going investment programme at the College to increase sporting opportunities and encourage more community use of the site.

Andy Commander, Hereward’s Curriculum Head said;
“We are absolutely thrilled over by the generosity of the People’s Postcode Trust, and of course the ticket-buying public. We are delighted to be installing in more high quality equipment at Hereward. This adds to a huge list of recent investment at the College to broaden opportunities for students and the local community.”

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.
