The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in Lancashire during the week beginning Sunday November 19 – 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 Lancashire’s HealthHeal Community Interest Company’s (CIC) turn.
Since its first Health Lottery Draw in February 2012 HealthHeal CIC has raised over £1.5 million for community groups in the area, with more than £94 million being raised nationwide.
Past projects have included Mercer House 1842, which trains volunteers to run community activities for local people at the Arthur Wilson Centre in the isolated community of Clayton le Moors near Accrington, and 5 Ways Boxing Academy CIC, which recruits and trains volunteers who deliver weekly sessions of sports and fitness activities to residents of South West Burnley.
Larger charities and organisations, such as Youth Sport Trust, have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthHeal CIC
