Dementia Adventure CIC is delighted to confirm that players of People's Postcode Lottery have confirmed their support for a second year. They have generously awarded £150,000 towards our activities planned for 2015/16 which will enable us to deliver more holidays, breaks and outdoor experiences for people living with dementia and their carers. Players of People's Postcode Lottery have now raised an amazing £61 million for charities and good causes since the lottery's launch in 2008.
The support has made a massive difference to hundreds of communities with funding awarded to numerous grass route groups and local projects as well as national and international charities. The funding awards were announced at People's Postcode Lottery's annual Charity Gala held in Edinburgh in January. Over £3 million in additional funding for supported charities – with Dementia Adventure being one of the recipients – was announced at the Gala. Dame Kelly Holmes joined 300 guests to celebrate the impact that players of People's Postcode Lottery have on charities and good causes.
