Kushinga Community Garden, Bournville

Kushinga Community Garden are celebrating a grant totalling £30,401 from People’s Health Trust, using money raised by The Health Lottery West Midlands.


This two-year project is the development of existing work, which is centred around a community garden in Bournville, Birmingham. The project brings members of the local community together particularly refugees and asylum seekers, to help manage the gardens.


The social currency project aims to support volunteers to develop skills both to maintain and manage the garden and also improve job prospects. The project will also provide opportunities for building connections between participants and the wider community, developing self-reliance and community cohesion.


Chris Lunn, spokesperson for The Health Lottery in the West Midlands said: “We are delighted that money raised through The Health Lottery West Midlands is supporting such important local projects like this one.”


To date, over £7.3 Million has been raised for Health Lottery West Midlands, which helps to make a huge difference to these local good causes groups.


Between 1 February and 28 February 2019, The Health Lottery West Midlands will benefit from Health Lottery tickets sold for all draws. You can purchase Health Lottery tickets in advance for these draws online at www.healthlottery.co.uk or from more than 32,000 local retailers nationwide including The Post Office, Tesco, Sainsburys, ASDA, Morrisons and WH Smith.
