BARNSLEY East MP Stephanie Peacock will host a virtual event next month to showcase the funding available for local charities.

Taking place on May 9 from 11am, the event will be virtual and there’ll be no charge for those wishing to attend.

It aims to highlight funding that could be available to local groups allocated by the Postcode Lottery for good causes.

There will also be a question-and-answer session so queries about the funding available can be raised by those who may be eligible.

Ms Peacock said: “I am pleased to be holding a virtual funding workshop alongside the People’s Postcode Lottery.

“The organisation has already raised over £1bn for good causes across the country, and I know that there are lots of organisations and charities across Barnsley East deserving of funding to help them achieve their goals.

“The event will take place on May 9 from 11am.

“If you would like to attend, please RSVP”
