The Health Lottery will be raising money for good causes in Derbyshire during the week beginning Sunday October 29 – 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 Derbyshire’s HealthCalm Community Interest Company’s (CIC) turn.
Since its first Health Lottery Draw in January 2012 HealthCalm CIC has raised over £1.6 million for community groups in the area, with more than £93 million being raised nationwide.
Past projects have included Derby West Indian Community Association which delivers sessions such as gentle fitness activities and film nights, enabling older people from the target communities to form friendships and feel less isolated. And Ripley Amateur Boxing Club which offers boxing based fitness community classes for the Elms and Porterhouse residents, encouraging people of different backgrounds, ages and diversities to come together.
Larger charities and organisations, such as Youth Sports Trust and The Conservation Volunteers, have also benefited from the funds raised by HealthCalm CIC.
