The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in Nottinghamshire during the week beginning Sunday, September 24 – 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 Nottinghamshire’s HealthRegard Community Interest Company’s (CIC) turn.
Since its first Health Lottery Draw in January 2012 HealthRegard CIC has raised over £1.5 million for community groups in the area, with more than £92 million being raised nationwide.
Using money raised by HealthRegard 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 Hope Springs Horticulture CIC, which provides horticultural therapy days for three days a week all year round and runs activities on an allotment site. And Bulwell Forest Garden which delivers a weekly lunch club at a community garden in Bulwell.
Larger charities and organisations, such as Youth Sport Trust and Scope have also benefitted from the funds raised by HealthRegard CIC.

Tickets are just £1 and can be bought online at healthlottery.co.uk or in over 32,000 stores (& post offices) and there are 5 draws a week
