The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in Coventry, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire during the week beginning Sunday, February 11 – 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 Coventry, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire’s HealthThrive Community Interest Company’s (CIC) turn.
Since its first Health Lottery draw in March 2012 HealthThrive CIC has raised over £1.5 million for community groups in the area, with more than £96 million being raised nationwide.
Past projects have included Bell Green Silver Surfers who deliver IT support to people aged 60+ to help with everyday activities like emails and online shopping, and Tea Leaf Tales who run weekly activity sessions, including drama and music, for young adults with learning disabilities.
Larger charities and organisations, such as Sustrans, have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthThrive CIC.
