Ekta - Unity Voluntary Organisation receives £34,265.
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.
The Connecting Communities programme seeks to increase the range of activities specifically catering for the needs of older Asian people living in Foleshill. By bringing local people together the project aims to alleviate loneliness and improve the community’s overall wellbeing. Activities will include games, yoga, dance and talks. The project will be led by a steering group of participants and local residents.
Surinder Dhillon from EKTA – Unity Voluntary Organisation said: “Thanks to this funding, we can continue to support local older Asian people in the Foleshill area.”
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.
