The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in Glasgow during the week beginning Sunday, May 28 – 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 Glasgow‘s HealthShine Community Interest Company’s (CIC) turn.
Since its first Health Lottery Draw in April 2012 HealthShine CIC has raised over £1.5 million for community groups in the area, with more than £88 million being raised nationwide.
Using money raised by HealthShine 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 Heart of Scotstoun, an initiative which encourages residents to develop and run activities, and South West Arts and Music Project (SWAMP), which combines food growing and horticulture activities with arts, media, cultural performance and education to develop health and wellbeing, employability skills, environmental knowledge and cultural awareness within the local community.
Larger charities and organisations, such as The Conservation Volunteers and Royal Voluntary Service, have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthShine CIC.
