The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in South West Scotland during the week beginning Sunday May 20 – and it needs your support.
Each week one lucky area benefits from money raised raised through The Health Lottery and there are draws every day from Tuesday to Saturday. This week it is South West Scotland’s HealthEngage Community Interest Company’s (CIC) turn.
Since its first Health Lottery draw in October 2011 HealthEngage CIC has raised over £1.8 million for community groups in the area, with more than £99 million being raised nationwide.
Past projects have included Break The Silence who help survivors overcome trauma to build self-esteem and reduce isolation; Speak Out Advocacy who provide professional advice to parents with learning disabilities who are subject to discrimination and risk losing their children because of this; and Lightburn Elderly Association who promote lifelong learning for the elderly.
Larger charities and organisations, such as Royal Voluntary Service, have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthEngage CIC.
