Hopper to Feature in National Lottery Case Study

The Uppingham Hopper is to feature in a case study being undertaken on behalf of the National Lottery Community Fund.

The study will explore how national funding has helped local community projects to support their neighbourhoods during the Covid-19 crisis.

During the past 18 months the Uppingham Hopper has been supported on more than one occasion by the Lottery Community Fund, thus ensuring the delivery of food and medicines continued as well as the movement of passengers to and from the local surgery and high street.
