Creative Academies in Sandwell receives £47,684.


Throughout February, Health Lottery West Midlands is raising money for local good causes. So far, Health Lottery West Midlands has raised more than £8 million for local good causes.


Creative Academies Ltd has received investment of £47,684 from People’s Health Trust, using money raised through the Health Lottery West Midlands.


The Home Grown 31: Connected Communities project will provide an arts and social action programme for young people in Sandwell. It will offer regular participatory arts activities, leadership training, accredited social training and cultural events. The project aims to build community cohesion, celebrate cultural diversity and enable participants to form bonds with their local neighbourhood. The aspiration is that young people will be inspired to take a lead in the project.


Jerrel Jackson, Director of Creative Academies said: “Thanks to this funding we can provide a programme of arts and social action that puts local young people in the driving seat in Sandwell.”


Chris Lunn, Director of Health Lottery West Midlands, said: “We are delighted that money raised by Health Lottery West Midlands is supporting such an important local project.”


Local grass roots charities in the West Midlands will benefit from Health Lottery tickets sold from 1 February until 28 February. What’s more, during that time, for every £1 entry into a weekly lottery draw the player will automatically be entered into the monthly mega raffle taking place on 1 March 2019, with a guaranteed prize of £250,000.
