Lincoln Community Lottery awards £11,500 to response fund
City of Lincoln Council has awarded £11,500 raised in the 2019/20 Lincoln Lottery Community Fund to the Lincoln City Covid-19 Community Response Fund.
The response fund, which was launched by the Lincolnshire Community Foundation in April 2020, is providing financial assistance to local charities and community groups working to deliver essential support to families and individuals facing hardship due to Covid-19.
Cllr Rosanne Kirk, Portfolio Holder for Reducing Inequality, said: “Local charities and community groups in and around the city have been severely impacted by Covid 19. This award will continue to help these great causes to deliver vital services during this difficult time. I would like to thank all supporters of the lottery for making this award possible.”
Sue Fortune, CEO at Lincolnshire Community Foundation, said: “During times of crisis it has been essential for organisations to work together to share knowledge and resources to target support where it will have the most impact. This donation from Lincoln Community Lottery will help meet some of the unmet needs within our communities who are experiencing hardship due to the pandemic.”
The award follows a joint decision by the Lincoln Lottery Member Panel. Further details on the Lincoln City Covid-19 Community Response Fund and a full list of awards can be accessed here Lincoln City Covid-19 Community Response Fund.
