A Stockport trampoline charity for disabled youngsters is bouncing off the walls after receiving a substantial grant from players of People's Postcode Lottery

Jump Space in Stockport have been awarded £15,343 for their Gym Mobility Project by Postcode Community Trust as part of the inaugural Q1 Community Grants round.

The money was to buy vital fixtures, fittings and equipment for the Hardman Street centre’s soft play and recreation area.

Established in 2014, Postcode Community Trust awards funds to good causes across Britain that actively promote participation in sport, health, community development and environmental protection.

The Trust receives all its funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Players have to date raised over £75.6 million for charities and good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

Marie Fisher, Chief Executive at Jump Space, said: “We’re so thrilled that players of People’s Postcode Lottery are supporting our charity.

“For many of our disabled members, Jump Space is the only venue they can regularly attend to keep active, fit and healthy, and this funding will make a huge difference to hundreds of children and young people.”

Clara Govier, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “We are delighted that funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery is allowing Jump Space to further support the needs of their disabled members. Jump Space has a huge impact on everyone involved and is making a massive difference to people’s lives.
