The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in Glasgow during the week beginning Sunday, July 22 – and it needs your support.

Each week one lucky area benefits from money raised through The Health Lottery and there are draws every day from Tuesday to Saturday. This week it is the turn of Glasgow’s HealthShine Community Interest Company’s (CIC).

Since its first Health Lottery draw in April 2012 HealthShine CIC has raised over £1.7 million for community groups in the area, with more than £100 million being raised nationwide.

Past projects have included Easthall Residents Association who provide a weekly social hub for local residents with additional support needs. And South West Arts and Music Project (SWAMP) who developed an outdoor space on the site of the Swamp Creative Media Centre in North Pollock into a community garden for local residents of all ages.

Larger charities and organisations, such as The Conservation Volunteers, have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthShine CIC.

Tickets are just £1 and can be bought in over 32,000 stores or online where you can also find the results of the 5 weekly draws.
