AN MP has urged his constituents to apply for a share of £3million that has been raised by the People's Postcode Lottery to support projects helping people.

Andrew Stephenson has urged Pendle residents to apply for the funding and is available until Wednesday August 14.

Mr Stephenson said: "There are so many brilliant community projects in Pendle that could benefit from this fantastic chance to secure funding, get an initiative off the ground or expand the reach of a service.

"Across the three trusts there is scope for such a wide variety of organisations to benefit, and I’d strongly encourage them to visit the website, find out where their project could fit and get an application in."

Voluntary groups and registered charities can apply for grants between £500 and £20,000.
