Bromley Mencap has received £17,052 thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The funding boost from People’s Postcode Trust will enable Bromley Mencap to pay for both capital and revenue costs of our new social enterprise at the Lodge in Norman Park.

Eddie Lynch, Chief Executive, of Bromley Mencap said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this funding from the People’s Postcode Trust. The money will help us greatly towards developing our new social enterprise at the Lodge in Norman Park and set up a bike recycling scheme, a horticulture project and open a café kiosk. The 3 businesses will provide training, volunteering and employment opportunities for disabled people in the local community.
