Heritage Lottery Fund
Postcode Neighbourhood Trust
November 2020 saw the Friends of Thetford Forest delighted to announce an award of £1,107 from the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust to purchase equipment to help with conservation and archaeology tasks. Having applied for funding in August, it is only now that we can publicise our success. The Postcode Neighbourhood Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery. Our grant came from money allocated to help voluntary groups in this year's challenging circumstances.
Local Connections Fund
2021 saw FoTF celebrate the award of a grant from the Local Connections Fund. The Local Connections Fund, supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) and the National Lottery Community Fund, was set up to bring people and communities together and reduce isolation and loneliness. Friends of Thetford Forest applied for funding for a wheelchair transporter bike which would enable wheelchair users to be with others cycling at High Lodge, instead of being excluded.
