Health Lottery Good Causes
The Health Lottery’s good causes benefit from 20p for every £1 spent on tickets. Rather than acting as a national lottery, the Health Lottery represents 51 society lotteries covering every area of Great Britain who help fund health-related projects through their charity partner, the People’s Health Trust.
The society lotteries take it in turns on a weekly basis to host the draws, raising money in their local area for schemes that do not already receive NHS funding.
Projects that have benefited from funds raised by Health Lottery players include:
- Waltham Forest Seniors’ Club received £47,000 to run arts classes in a new friendship hub that helps local senior citizens who are suffering from loneliness or depression.
- An award of £17,000 was made to the United Community Centre in Northam, Devon to pay for a leader to run “challenging and stimulating” youth club sessions.
- The People’s Health Trust provided Hulme Community Garden Centre in Manchester with £44,077 to continue its work helping those with mental health issues and problems with drink or drugs as well as giving locals in social housing without gardens a chance to grow plants.
The Health Lottery also works with established names like Mencap, Dementia UK and the Children’s Food Trust.
