Funding Boost


We have received £2000 thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The funding boost from Postcode Local Trust will enable us to go ahead with our plans for a dipping platform at Tag Loop ponds. The work will be done over the Autumn/Winter period, ready for use next Spring and Summer. We will be delighted to welcome visitors and help everyone to enjoy and learn about the pond life.

Postcode Local Trust exists to fund community groups and charitable organisations through a variety of grant giving programmes. To do so, the Trust relies solely on funding from the proceeds of tickets sales from People’s Postcode Lottery. When you sign up to play People’s Postcode Lottery, your postcode is your ticket. It costs £10 for 10 draws paid monthly in advance with prizes every day. A minimum of 27.5% goes directly to charities across Great Britain and internationally.

The Open Day 2016 is being supported by a grant from Calderdale Council's Festival Fundand a donation from WILKO’s Helping Hand Fund.

 Many thanks for this support.
