The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in West Yorkshire during the week beginning Sunday, March 26 – and it needs your support.
Each week one lucky area benefits from Health Lottery proceeds and there are draws every day from Tuesday to Saturday. This week it is West Yorkshire’s HealthBloom Community Interest Company’s (CIC) turn.
Since its first Health Lottery Draw in April 2012 HealthBloom CIC has raised over £1.4 million for community groups in the area, with more than £86 million being raised nationwide.
Using money raised by HealthBloom CIC through The Health Lottery, grants have been awarded by People’s Health Trust through Active Communities, a funding programme which invests in local people and groups in communities with great ideas to make their communities even better.
Past projects have included Bierley Community Association, an initiative which offers activities such as weekly lunches and exercise classes for people aged over 60, and Halifax Boxing, Sports and Fitness Club, a project which delivers a volunteer training scheme for local people who are not in education, training or employment, who then run a programme of ongoing community activities at the club.
Larger charities and organisations, such as Youth Sports Trust, Royal Voluntary Service and Alzheimer’s Society, have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthBloom CIC.
